"I have come to appreciate the library as a way to connect with our larger community – a community that values reading and learning."

Going to the library is my kids’ favorite rainy-day activity.  And since we live in the damp Pacific Northwest, we go often! 

Our trips to the library began when the boys were little and we went to the weekly baby and toddler story time with the children’s librarian.  It was a great way for us to get out and meet other parents with young kids, some of whom have become good friends. 

Now that our kids are a little older, we still go every week or so to pick out some new books, play with toys and check out the library fish tank.  Aside from the obvious benefit of all the great reading material we could possibly want, I have come to appreciate the library as a way to connect with our larger community – a community that values reading and learning.
