L’s celebration is for LIBRARY WEEK

Friday, April 13th: Two days left! L’s celebration is for LIBRARY WEEK, from April 8th to the 14th. I’ve had a library addiction for most of my life. Books, books and more books; it’s a paradise, filled with millions of pages of printed words. Books for every subject or genre you can think of. Stories to take you away to other worlds and lands, books that teach you (landscaping, interior design, writing, cooking, crafting, automotive … almost anything you can think of), and even books that take you back in time. And they’re FREE … all FREE! It sure helps keep my Barnes and Noble ‘habit’ under control.

Libraries have expanded their collections and most now also stock audio books and DVD’s. Sometimes there’s a $1 or $2 fee for those, but that’s still a nominal amount. Libraries offer a variety of ways to connect with your children. View this page for good family bonding ideas at the library. http://atyourlibrary.org/connectwithyourkids.

    The bad news is that my nearest library has been closed. The good news is that it has been closed because they are tearing it down to build a larger, more modern library. I won’t be open for another year, but it should be nice when it does reopen.

      At least with the newer, larger library, they should have more selections for you. Plus, you’ll be done with the A to Z challenge by then and have more time to read.

    After we had checked out our books I asked my young son if he would help carry some of them to the car. He said, “Sure. You take the fiction and I’ll take the non-fiction.”

    The librarian was floored. Unfortunately, his love for books didn’t last once they started competing with video games, but my daughter and I still share the passion.

      What a great story Cindy!
      I understand about the video game competetion. As much as I read, and as many thousands of bedtime stories both my boys had, neither one of them is a reader. Get them on a video game or RC controlled airplane though, and they’re lost for hours.
      I’m glad your daughter shares your passion.
