Welcome to the New Children’s Library Starry Cone

A major remodel has transformed the Starry Cone into an inclusive early literacy and play space with a spaceship/space theme.  It includes numerous wall panel installations and early literacy manipulatives which provide an interactive, educational and safe area for younger children of all abilities and needs.  These new literacy toys are tactile, attractive and accessible to everyone.

The Foundation funded this phase one remodel thanks to the contributions of many generous donors over the past several years.  The wall panels were designed and installed by the Burgeon Group in collaboration with our fantastic Hercules Library manager and staff.


A very special thanks to Soroptimist International of Richmond for awarding us a $3,000 grant to help fund this transformation!

On December 5, 2019, we were also very pleased to accept a $3,000 check from SaveMart at our local Hercules Lucky store to fund the Story Cone.   Thank you for supporting our local Hercules community.
