How often do you go to the library?

and do you check out books for you and your children or just your children?

  • We visit the library about 3 times a week. My son loves going there because he gets computer time without mom looking over his shoulder! lol There are alot of safeguards and filters in the library's internet system, and even I know they aren't perfect, I don't worry about him using the computer there. We also check out books, DVD's and borrow from other libraries through their system.

  • During the school year, not very often. But during the summer we go probably every couple of weeks or so. Ours has a great area for the children to play. They could stay there all day!!

  • We go once a week and check out books weekly. Then again with us homeschooling it's essential that we hit the library weekly.

  • During the school year, the children and I go about once per month. They get books at the school library, so the need isn't as urgent :-) In the summer, we go about every 2-3 weeks and check out several books each time.

  • We go once or twice a week for children's hour...I don't check out books for her though because we have a ton of books at home...but since we couldnt afford preschool I thought that the interaction with the other children would be good for her =)

  • We also home school, but I end up buying the books they need for reading. My ds is special needs so sometimes the work takes a little longer. And we have encyclopedias so we really don't go that often.
