In lovely "Olde Towne Beverley", we have the Abbottsfield-Penny McKee Branch EPL, located in the Beverly Crest Hotel, coincidentally the same hotel where my parents got engaged in the MCMLX's (1960's.) While the hotel has a superb buffet, whats even more superb is they adapted the old Roadhouse Restaurant inII a branch of the EPL when EPL's former space across the street at Abbottsfield Mall was no longer adequate for the community's needs.
Whats great about Abbotsfield EPL is that its all ground level, so that it really feels a part of both the hotel, & the community as well. From Wednesday, September XIXth II Wednesday, December XIXth we have "Baby Laptime." This is for parents/guardians with their child(ren) up II age XII (12) months. I like this idea, instilling a calm reading & tying it with comfy laptime in a protector's arms will make the child want II continue II listen, learn, read, & explore themselves as they grow older & become pafrents themselves.
