The Woodlawn branch is close to I-695 at the Security Blvd exit. The entrance to the Storyville parking lot is actually before the library when coming from I-695, so watch for a sign that says "Storyville". If you miss it and turn into the library parking lot, you can walk through the library to the entrance of Storyville, which is in the back corner of the main library area. At the entrance to the village, there are two family bathrooms, a water fountain, and an area to hang coats.

In the back of Storyville, there is a small, traditional library space lined with books and some comfy places to sit and read. We took notice to some backpacks along the wall in this area that were filled with books. Each backpack was for a certain topic, such as "animals" or "things that move", and they could be checked out of the library as a package to learn more about that topic.
Storyville is free of charge for children and adults, and a great place to spend an hour or two learning and playing at the same time.
Things to Remember:
1. Storyville has a maximum capacity with a wait list, so you may want to call ahead to see how busy they are on a particular day.
2. Only children 5 and under can play in Storyville, so make arrangements for older children.
