Anyways...because I grew up in Penfield, I'll always consider it my "home library". Really, it's not too much further driving there than to the Fairport library for me. If you've never been, it's a pretty nice library. The kids room is HUGE and has a very good selection of kids DVDs and books for all ages.
They also have an area within the children's room with a kid-size sofa and table with puzzles, stuffed animals and puppets.
But...Logan's favorite part of this library is the fish tank when you walk into the children's room.
Penfield Public Library is located at 1985 Baird Road in Penfield and is open Monday-Thursday 10am-9pm, Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, and Sunday 2pm-5pm.
