Me and my kids like to stay at home and do baking and craft stuff, but what we like most when we go out is a trip to the park. or even better, Library. we walk for about 15 mins. my two kids are in double pram and my elder daughter help me push it on our way. we take turns, especially on side paths i let her stroll it for some time. she is always so excited to go and unfold a world of colorful books, we borrow many. each books is like a window to a beautiful world to us and we read them over and over, we take care of them and treasure them, and return them on time. it happend only once that i lost a book and i felt soooo bad, i make sure it dosen’t happen again. my daughter helps me keep the books safe from little brother and sister, so they dont rip them apart. we once even got a lot of free books when library was getting new books. they are very happy in their new home after 2 years too. i don’t know what we would do if there were not so many libraries around. i don’t think there is a better place to visit! our every trip is a memorable one. thanks to the libraries!

  • I agree. I took the kids often to the local library when they were little , but as they got older it wasn’t that enjoyable because they now have to study ! . Enjoy the fun now , it is such a great place to read and learn .

  • Yes, libraries are great. Good educational and fun place and doesn’t cost anything to go to which is an added bonus. Great to get kids reading and appreciating books.

  • Yes, I agree. As I’ve mentioned before, we always took the kids to the library, came home with lots of books and just devoured them. It was so much fun for them to choose the books and bring them home. Bedtime stories and reading on the couch…lovely memories.

  • i use the library a lot during the winter times maybe i should go during the summer more but anyway we love going there and exploring all the books and its also great the amount of friends you actually meet there as they go to the library just as much as you.

  • Libraries are just great, and you’re providing your kids with such a good start with those visits.

  • I agree with you :) our eldest loves to read to her little sister. Also our five month old is fascinated by them. It doesn’t matter what other toys you show her, if there’s a book within sight she’s glued to it!

  • I have just discovered the joys of what my local library has to offer. I almost bought the DVD Mabo the other day and then thought better of it and a lightbulb moment happened where I thought hmm maybe my local library has that. It is also only up the road and it opens until 12pm on Saturday.
