We Love Libraries

Aaron is definitely a book worm. The first thing he does every morning is read and he'll read all day if he could. I want this for Adrian too but I admit that I have read to him far less than I read to Aaron at this age. The good thing is that sometimes, Aaron helps me to read to Adrian. 

One of our favourite places to go is the library. They both get so excited about it and really enjoy the time there. I think we have a limit of about 20 books that we can borrow on each of our cards so the boys can pick as many as they like. I usually need to find a shopping cart just to transport the books from the library to the car. Adrian sometimes has problems returning the books but once he's in the library, he gets right into picking out new ones. 

Aaron could spend hours in a library. Now I just need to get Adrian to that stage so that I too can spend hours in a library again.

Good readers are better students--in all disciplines. Plus it is a great way to develop your ideas.
I fear the day that books are obsolete. Libraries are more than a place to get books, they are gathering places and a place for idea exchange.

I like reading the pictures best.

Libraries are among my very favorite places. We are very fortunate to have an excellent library system here in Fairfax County, Virginia, but it's always in danger every time budgets need to be cut...for some reason it's never viewed as an investment in education, but as a frivolous expense.
