Books, Books, Old House, Fireplace, and More Books!

This is quite overdue, but a couple weeks ago, a local library had it’s grand opening!  You’re probably thinking, big deal, but no, this library is a big deal.  First, it’s built off an old house and it’s huge, the land around it is quite spacious.



This place is one that I want Austin to visit often.  They’ve got lots of books, computer games, puzzles, and a special story time barn built just for kids.




The place smells new, there’s a ton of seating, there’s a cafe to eat, meeting rooms, fireplace, computer labs and more!  AND I didn’t get it a picture of it, but the place you return books is a conveyer belt sorter, so cool!

If Austin can be this excited about books for the rest of his life, then I’d say we did a pretty good job raising him.  😉

Apparently, we both hold Austin the same way.  He likes it.  And he loves his snacks too.  And running away from us…

    What a fabulous facility for you to have so close by, Sandy! Austin is going to love it for years. How great that he is so excited about books already.

    Hope you guys are having a super summer!
