Finally Checked Out the Library

We are very lucky to have a brand new library near us. So I had to go check it out. My daughter and I are both book lovers so I figured it would be a good outing for us. Pumpkin even got to stay up past her bedtime a little bit.

I will say that I love this new library. There are shelves and shelves full of new books, plenty of computers, magazines, cds and so forth. Oh, and they have great parking. I had so much fun browsing the shelves that I wound up coming home with several books to read. Now I just need to find the time to actually read them.

The new library also has a wonderful children's area. They have an enclosed play room so you don't have to worry about the kids getting noisy and they also have a small play area out with the children's books. Pumpkin had a blast hanging out in the play area and playing with some of the other children. I am seriously amazed at all the toys they had there. There was so much to do that she wasn't even ready to leave when we were. We had to drag her out of there.

We had so much fun there that I'm thinking about making this a regular outing for us. So when you're trying to come up with inexpensive activities for the family, don't forget about your local library. They can be a great resource and so many of the newer ones have great activities for children.

I also checked out the new library on their opening day! It had that "new library smell". Lots of crisp new books! It is a "green" building and they were handing out brochures on how it was built to follow the green regulations. Very interesting!!

I didn't get a brochure. Next time I'm there I'll have to see if they still have any.

How exciting!!! We are getting a new library that is really close to the gym we go to so we might be visiting every day! I can't wait!!! It was supposed to be finished in January but now they are saying April. I hope it has a fun playroom like your library. That would be so nice to keep my little girls entertained.

I wish our library had a fun enclosed playroom for the kids. I think I'll bring it up next time I'm in there.

Had to make see if it was near me. Our local town built a new library also. I don't like it much. It is too modern looking for my taste. It also feels cold.
I sure like the online service.
