Let's Go To The Library


It has been forever since I had gone to the public library... The other day - I decided to take the kids to the library for some summer time reading.. What was really great was that they had a readers club for my youngest.. For every twenty minutes of reading she gets to fill in a circle.. when all of the circles (5 hours) are filled in she gets a prize... There are three more five (5) hour segments.. and after each segment... yep you guessed it - she gets a prize... after her paper is completed and she has read for twenty hours total.. she gets four Los Angeles (I prefer California) Angel tickets!!!!! Oh the excitement... oh the challenge for my "I hate to read" kid.... the thought of the golden Angel tickets at the end - has given her the motivation she needs....

My teen had a great time looking into all the books - she's my reader.. She had the librarian looking up this and that.... and they were finding all sorts of books... Right now - my kid is into supernatural... dream walking mostly..... not vampires... but more along the lines of mind control..... I can't keep up with her tastes...

I too am an avid reader when I have the time. I have a very wide range of likes... from romantic suspense to true crime... to religion to autobiographies.... I just never know what will interest me this week.. The library also had three gift baskets for adults to win.. and all the adult has to do is yes you guess it.... check out a few books and read.. hmmm - I really like the bath and bed basket......

Kelly's idea #17 - Take your kids or yourself to the library and check out a book.... or two.. Happy reading!

Isn't it too funny in our day, we went to the library and checked books out to read and return them. Now they have book stores, so you buy the books and donate them to the library when you finish reading them.

I too, love the California Angels anyday over the Los Angeles title that LA likes to give anything that resides in Southern California.
