The Roswell Public Library staff has been working with the Finance Department for a sole source approval to purchase customized interactive learning areas from the Burgeon Group.

The main street Roswell panels will span the south wall of the Malone room. In the children’s area there will be a water theme structure that will complement the wet lands in Roswell. This structure will also include interactive learning features.
