  • I took my dd to the summer reading program and she loved it. The fall storytime is just starting up so we will probably try it. We will just have to see how my 19 month old does. DD loves to pick out her own books and usually has them memorized by the time we turn them back in. As for being safe, yes, I think it is. I also don't let them out of my sight.

  • Yes! They love to go and sit at the little tables and read the books.. It's always seemed safe when we were there.

  • Yes, we go a couple times a week. It's pretty safe, next door is a police station.

  • Ive always wanted to take my 3 yo to the library during storyhour. My son loves books, but now he's loving to talk loud so it makes me nervous.

  • I think it is a safe place, but I hate taking them there. They are expected to be entirely too quiet. If they speak above a whisper (hard for a 5 and 3 year old NOT to) everyone looks at them and we have been asked to leave before (even though they were being good and not speaking very much at all!). I would MUCH rather go alone! lol

  • Yes to both. They all love picking out books and movies, and the library also offers a lot of children's programs and activities as well.

  • Yep to both - although I think they're too young (6 & 10) to be left alone there.
