Library Haul

We have a pretty great library system in our city.  There are eight locations throughout, and a website that makes it super easy to place holds on nearly anything, (I've ran into the situation where items are unavailable only a handful of times) and monitor your checkouts and account.  Two of the locations are within walking/riding distance from where we live, so we can conveniently visit at least two to three times a week.  We usually go on Wednesdays and Fridays, and will sometimes hit the Fall Storytime on Saturdays.

There are special events such as movie showings, interactive plays, and magic shows.  And just this last week the holiday program was released, full of seasonal activities to attend throughout the next two months. 

You could say this is my favorite place to go and be on a regular basis.  I told my husband the other day that when we pick up all the holds I've placed each week, to me it feels like Christmas.  He looked at me like I was nuts.

Nonetheless, my son and I can't wait to get started on these new books and dvds over the weekend...


  1. If you give a mouse a cookie is a favorite around here. So much so, I have it memorized and so does Henry :-)

  2. This is our first time reading it; it was on the reading list for next week's lesson. I don't know if I ever would've discovered it otherwise, and I'd be so sad to miss out on such a cute book. We love it too! Any other favorites you guys have that we can check out? (and I love that it was written in 1985- takes me back... to when I met you!!) Love ya girl :)
