Christianne over at Little Page Turners (a great blog for children's book lovers), is hosting a Love My Library blog party today, and for the rest of the week.
Clearly, we love our library. I'm not sure how we would homeschool without it.
Our library is a small town library. It's not big, or exciting, or exceptionally child friendly. But, it's within walking distance of our house. They let the children pick up my books, even when I'm not with them, and even if they forget their library cards. And, the librarian who monitors the Internet computers, use to be the children's Sunday school teacher - so no worries.
There is a small children's section, with little tables, blocks, and a tiny fish tank.
They host a summer reading program, with drawings for fun prizes.
Because they are linked in with Montana Regional Libraries, we can borrow books from all over the state - no matter how nasty the weather on the passes. Which means, there are some dedicated librarians out there, literally risking their lives (or at least their vehicles), to make sure we never run out of good books to read.
And, because this is Montana, the best part of our library, is outside in the yard...
...where a river runs through it.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
