Library - The Heart of Northside
Founded 30 years ago, the Children’s Library was named after the late Jane Allen Emil, who brought warmth and devotion to hundreds of children during her long tenure as a reading therapist at Northside.
Because she continued to embody the vision of the Founders throughout her later service on the Board of Directors and until her passing, the Library itself stands as a living memorial to her legacy. It has over 4,000 books and offers children a wonderful resource for study, thinking reading and learning. It is often referred to as the “Heart of Northside.”
