Coronavirus Update

As a response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, and in an effort to keep our Smart Start families and community healthy, the Resource Room is closed until further notice, which includes no lending of materials or utilizing our laminating, die-cut, etc. services. If you have any items currently on loan, please hold on to them until we reopen. While we regularly sanitize all Resource Room toys and materials, we will be doing a deep cleaning/sanitation while we are closed.  We hope to begin opening soon with some restrictions and a possible reservation system in place.  We will keep you posted.

Please check our Facebook page and our Coronavirus Webpage for updates on COVID-19 and resources available in our community.
