Just about every room in our building is used by multiple groups 6+ days a week from 7 AM to 10 PM. The Little Lambs, who meet with Coffee Break on Wednesday mornings needed a spot where they could have their snacks. The library was a great spot. Turns out kids spill things though, and the carpet in the library isn't compatible with spilled kool-aid. What we needed was a section with hardwood flooring.
Our problem was solved in about 20 minutes using snap together foam tiles:
Not only was it quick and fairly inexpensive, it also adds padding to the area and spills clean up quickly & easily.
By the way, if you haven't been in the Library in quite some time, stop by and take a look. Laura Rogers is always adding new titles. There are lots of Bible Study resources for your small group, and books from all sorts of genres and topics.
