About the Family Space

After serving the community for over 100 years, the Seymour Library Children’s Room required a facelift.
Seymour Library used a bequest from Mrs. Jeanne Z. Dunn to secure a grant from NYS Construction Aid to Public Libraries to revamp the library’s lower level. Using this NYS grant and the Dunn bequest, Seymour Library created the new Richard S. and Jeanne Z. Dunn Family Space.

The library is pleased to report that families are enjoying the new space. In particular, Amy’s Nook, a new feature that utilizes space underneath one of the library’s staircases. Amy’s Nook is in memorial to Amy Walsh Underhill, daughter of long-standing patron Marcia Walsh. We are certain Amy would have approved and invited you to check out some books and our new space!
