How often do you visit the library?

We are doing the summer reading program this year. Before this our trips to the library were pretty sporadic. It is sad actually because I used to spend a lot of time in the library when I was growing up because I loved to read and would spend hours at a time there.

Anyway, yesterday, the kid wanted to 'explore' after reading group was over. He LOVED it. He wanted to sit at the 'big' tables and read. He kept looking around at all the people. It was so sweet to watch his eyes light up like that. Im thinking we are going to make this a regular outing even after the summer program ends.

Do you and your little people visit the library often? Do they enjoy it?

We don't visit it at all.  I remember visiting it often as a kid.  I think once the kids all get older, it will be easier to visit.  I have no idea how our library is either!

When I'm not in school I go about once a week to get reading books.  If my son is with me he'll go when I go otherwise he goes with his daycare whenever they have activities there.  His school library (when they are in session) he goes about 2 x a week.  He loves to read!

One perk of where we live (and the fact that its a small town) is that all we have to do is walk through our back yard, through the post office parking lot, cross the road and we're at the library lol

My "little people" are now 25 and 26, so they no longer go with me.  I go every weekend.  I LOVE to read!
