We have about 10 great libraries in our city and up until today, I haven't taken my 17 month old to one of them yet. In fact, before today, it's been about 4 years since I've visited the library, which is pretty sad. My daughter loves to look at books and have them read to her. We have about 30 books and although she's not bored with them, I'm starting to get a little tired of the same ol', same ol'. I can't afford to buy much right now, books included, so the library is going to become our new favorite place.
But we all know you can check out books at the library. The really fun part is...We went to our city's main library today and...Olive was able to get her OWN library card! That's right, a 17 month old can have a library card under their own name. Olive didn't get it, but I was super excited!
