Soapbox Saturday - the Library

Today I want to declare my strong love for our library.  Yes, I LOVE the library.  Let me tell you exactly why.

1) There are days when we need to get out of the house and I don't want or need to go shopping.  I don't want to spend money and I need to do something my boys will enjoy.  The perfect solution?  The library.

2) I fell in love with Project Runway last season.  It was the first season I had watched and I instantly wanted more.  I didn't want to join Net Flicks just to watch them.  No problem.  I can reserve them from the library online and they e-mail me when it's ready to be picked up!  It's like having a friend that owns every movie.  Yeah baby!

3) I want to introduce lots of different books to my boys, but I don't want to spend all our money on a billion books and it's hard to know which ones are going to be good.  When I check them out at the library it's not a big deal if we get one that isn't great.  We've got twelve other ones to read and I didn't have to spend any money.

4) I have seriously considered dumping our cable because we can check out DVDs for the boys at the library.  They even had old school Transformers and lots of weird old shows Rex loves.

Lately we've found some amazing pop-up books.  Wow, they have come a long way since I was a kid!  Check these out.

This one even has the Lasso of Truth.  Look out.

So, thank you library for loaning us your cool books and shows.  Thank you for not minding that my boys don't really understand the meaning of the word "whisper."  Thank you for giving us someplace to hang out when the weather is cold and we need a little excitement.  Thank you for having that cool conveyer to return the books on.  (I even think that's pretty fun.)  You rock.

What's your favorite thing about the library?
