Library Day

About once a week we take a trip to the library. I've found Silas enjoys reading books much more when he has helped pick them out. It is such a blast watching him wander up and down the aisles, pulling books out at an angle so he can check the cover out before he makes his final decision. We're lucky our library has a great children's program, which includes daily story times, puppet shows and plays. Piling in to that big room with all the other parents, babies and toddlers is an activity we enjoy a little more every time.

  All ready for the library.

Awhile ago, while visiting my mom in her (very, very) small town, we got the library itch. A quick internet search resulted in finding not only a story time, but a library play date as well. Feeling encouraged by this library's kid-centered activities, I talked with a few friends from other areas of the country who live in both small and large town and, turns out, all of their libraries had at least one day a week focused on children!

My advice: do a quick internet search or simply stop by your local library and ask for their activity schedule. If they don't have a story time already set up, let them know you would be interested in helping them plan a child-centered activity. Happy reading!
