What I love....the library.
Since slowly adapting my family to a "consume less" lifestyle we have found a large love of the library.
I have read more books in the last month then I have in the last 5 years (that's a little embarrassing to admit).
Now part of that is I have found more time for reading and have found ways to work it into my schedule.
My kids have enjoyed playing together more and have needed me less.
Now while that was a little disheartening it also has been a pleasure. I can let them play outside and I can enjoy some sunshine on the deck while being immersed in Alice Steinbach's travels around Europe.
My daughter has really shown a love for our weekend jaunts to the library. She looks at it almost like shopping. I allow her to pick out whatever she wants (and as many as she wants for that matter).
Who knew there could be such unbridled passion for picking out books? She then picks out a new book each night for the next two weeks to read before bed.
I love that my kids enjoy reading more and that they get upset if we can't go to the library (I don't like to make them upset but you get the point).
Anywho the library we go to is beautiful. It is set in a park and there are walking trails (which we haven't explored yet) and a butterfly meadow.
The entry has a beautifully painted ceiling
Well I hope if you don't visit your local library that maybe this will spur you into visiting. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.
