I LOVE libraries!! I have a hard time walking out of a library empty-handed. I was trying to think back to when this attachment began, and I remember browsing shelves in a tiny library in NC. I used to go to the library over my lunch hour, and just look for books that might interest me.
Today the girls and I went to a library that was new to us and it was awesome! They had a huge selection of books...I really didn't even know where to begin looking!
Recently, when people ask me what curriculum I use for homeschooling, I tell them that we use the library! The majority of our homeschooling is reading...to each other, to our selves...reading stories, reading facts. Sometimes we pick a topic (penguins or owls) and try to find as many resources as possible. Other times we pick one of our Compassion children and find books about their country.
I am so thankful for the service libraries provide us. And I am thankful that the girls like our weekly trips just as much as I do!
Do you make use of your local library?
