National Library Week! Celebrate! Reasons to Love your Library!

ALA_NLW2015_375x474

Don’t you just love your library? I know I do. Just type “library” in my search box. I love that I can take my kids to not only pick out books to read and take home, but for them to socialize with the other library loving kids. I love that my children get to listen to a story teller, be entertained by a musician, see a magician, create a craft, hear a story, and learn to love books!

Reasons to love your library:

  1. Books!
  2. Community
  3. Story time
