I am a library junkie. I know, it makes me sound like the biggest nerd alive, but if I don’t get my library fix at least once a week, there is hell to pay. I never miss a baby rhyme time session, and if I loan any less then 20 books at a time I can feel myself getting antsy. The reason I want to post this is because, for the first time in my 6 year library membership I have lost a book. In particular, The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson and I am pretty sure I brought it back but the library missed scanning it in. But still, I figure $14.50 is a pretty good deal for literally thousands of books borrowed for free over the years! If any of you have been neglecting the library for a while, it’s time to go back, because they offer so many fun activities for kids in a safe and friendly environment – gone are the days when you have to keep your kids quiet in the library – these days they just seem happy you are there. Every school holidays they host different art and craft and little learning activities. I know it’s not the same at all libraries but it’s definitely an untapped resource with many of the mothers I know. Oh, and they always have loads of great dvd’s (and kids ones too!) so you can also save money from the video store! OK, before the library take out a restraining order against me, I’ll leave it there, but google your local library and you won’t be sorry!
