A holiday library

Suspecting we might be housebound for our week away, BP and I took a quiet moment (Little Fearse’s last day at child care) and visited our local library.

Seven board books  for Little Fearse to explore all on her own (and hopefully not chew too much).

With an attempt at a bit of a sea theme, since we were holidaying by the seaside.

Eleven ‘children’s’ CDs for a little family dance-a-thon and some bad car trip singing.

Looking forward to seeing some new Little Fearse dance moves. She’s recently graduated from the simple knee bend to a bit of a side shuffle with an arm thrown into the air occasionally for good measure.

Twelve unknown picture story books for Mama and Poppa to read to Little Fearse.

We find that reading a new story book to Little Fearse is, so far, even more exciting for us than for her.

Since we didn’t even have to see a librarian with the new-fangled self check -out desks BP said he felt a little like he was stealing, walking out of there with two arm loads of books and CDs without parting with a cent. I have sometimes felt sad about the demise of the library, but you know what? The library was teeming with people – grandparents reading with their grandchildren, young kids playing video games (wha?), teenagers studying, people surfing the ‘net and perusing the extensive DVD collection. Some people were even borrowing books.

Libraries are alive and well. When did you last visit yours?
