When we moved, I wasn’t convinced that another library could compare to the one we used to go to regularly (could walk to, in fact.) But I’ve been pleasantly surprised. Here are some of the reasons:
A) The story time librarian
She likes books, kids, and music. She brings good stories, a drum and a guitar as well as a bunch of enthusiasm to each session. We sing in at least two languages every week.
B) A great summer reading program
What better way could to encourage more reading than to offer books for prizes?
C) An emphasis on early literacy development
Bookmarks and other resources for patrons encourage caregivers to use books to their full advantage, but most of all to just keep reading.
D) Access to lots of books
Though it is a smaller library, it is a part of a major metro library system. The books I’ve requested so far have arrived in a timely fashion.
What do you like about your library?
