I know many of us bloggers use the library frequently. We're avid readers and booklovers, so why wouldn't we visit the library? I don't love the library because I work there, I work there because I love the library. I thought in honor of National Library Week, I'd share one of my favorite library memories.
My favorite event my library held was the library booksale. Sure the main booksale was fun-it was in one of the local mall's and you would walk through the halls and there were tables of books everywhere-it was an all day event for my family! But the best booksale was the children's only booksale/swap. You had to be under 18 and you had to bring books to swap. For each book you brought, you got a ticket to use for the books inside. And the best part-no adults allowed! My parents were always good about letting me read what I wanted, but there was something really cool about going to a booksale without any adult with me. My mom would stand outside wherever the sale was being held and sometimes I'd go over to the entrance and show her what I had. But in the end, the books were all books I had chosen and that was very special.
Do you have any favorite library memories?
I love this clip from Reading Rainbow. Thanks Heather for sharing it!
