We've lived in this valley for almost two years. There are a lot of things I still don't know. A lot of places I've never been. A lot of places I don't EVER want to go. But today I decided to drag my family out to one of the places we have wanted to go, but we've just never gotten around to it.
The Public Library.
That's right. In the last 2 years we have not stepped foot inside a public library. Little Bug has a really hard time going in. He cried as we walked in. He whimpered as we looked at books. He screamed when I gave the lady the books to check out. For some reason, he is not a big library fan.
But I had forgotten how much I love them! You see, for the last few years we have purchased a lot of books. Mostly online. Ebay is an excellent source. We also have a Barnes and Noble membership which gives us all kinds of discounts. We have a pretty decent library here in our home and I don't mind reading good books over and over. But sometimes I get bored. And we don't always have the money to get new books. I've borrowed a few books here and there from friends, but I'm a pretty avid reader! I go through books rather quickly. And going to the library today was like being reacquainted with an old friend. A friend that terrifies my middle child, but a friend none-the-less.
And so, I'm off. It's reading time. I was only allowed to take out two books today. I'll probably have them done by Monday. As soon as I take these two back, I'll be allowed to check out 30 books at a time.
30. That thought? Well, it makes me smile just a bit!
