We are avid readers. Our home is full of books that are read and re-read. iDevices have eBooks and apps for borrowing books online. Yet one of our favourite places is the town library, a place that feels like a second home. Today, a PD day for the Sprouts, we decided to visit the library, a place we had not been to in a while. The librarians were happy to see us. The children’s librarian kept pulling new books off the shelf for Sprout Two, “Check this one out!” The older Sprout spent time upstairs looking through teen literature (I can’t believe she’s a teenager already!). When we checked out our pile of books, the “upstairs librarian” didn’t even bat an eye. She printed off the receipt, a long list of book titles, smiled, and wished us well on our reading adventures. We love reading.
