Currently I have far too many books out from the library. But that is also the joy of it all! I can sample so much goodness without going into serious credit card debt and then choose what I want to invest in. Meanwhile, my knowledge grows, curiosity gets sparked, questions get answered.
My library branch happens to be very small. At first I thought this was a negative trait. However, I have come to appreciate it for a few reasons. They have a quiet, little story time that Jacob and I enjoy together and where (due to the smallness) he can actually see the stories being read. When I want a certain book, I simply go online, place a request for it, and it shows up on my local library's hold shelf, with my name on it, ready to be picked up. Easy, breezy. I still enjoy going to the bigger branches and oggling at the bigger selection of books, of course, but our branch fulfills all my needs. And we can walk there!
I was very proud of Jacob today. He sat and "read" his books while I searched for others. We got a bit carried away today. At the end, he was just walking along picking books off the shelf at random (I wonder where he's seen that?). I had to kindly suggest that we had enough books at this point. But who am I to tell someone else to stop when I myself cannot?! Heehee...
