Why is the Library so underrated these days? When I was coming up, I would spend hours and hours in my neighborhood library reading books, meeting new friends, and participating in the art classes and story time which was always readily available.
These days it’s a little different. My son prefers going to Borders and hanging out than going to the library. Which is okay. But being able to read books for free in a wonderful fact filled area is in my opinion, better. So when my daughter asked what we were going to do yesterday, I knew the perfect place to spend the afternoon.
At five years of age, I thought it was a perfect time to get my daughter her very own library card. It’s important for me to know that she is being exposed to much educational fun as possible. Having her own library card gives her her very own tool to open her mind through reading.
I vowed to spend more time at the library myself. There was a time that I stayed in the library checking out books and audio books to enjoy. My daughter loved the experience, so I am sure we will be spending more time in her new favorite place.
What a wonderful gift to give to your children. And it’s completely free!
Special thanks to the St. Louis County Public Library’s Thornhill Branch for giving us a wonderful tour!
