It's Time to Get a Library Card

If this is the image that comes to mind when you hear the word 'library' please continue reading. I read that reading teaches babies about communication, gives them information about the world around them and builds listening skills. Not to mention it's just plain fun.

So after reading all the awesome books I was given for my baby shower we headed to the Madison Public Library for new material. We found the board books (I also made the mistake of getting non-board books that c ripped. After paying for the ruined copy of Knitty Kitty I vowed to supervise the use of library paper books in the future.) and so much more.

Did you know you can check out:
  • Cds, audiobooks and workout dvds? 
  • Cookbooks?
  • Download e-books? 
They also offer story hour for kids and events for all ages. But my favorite feature is the online library catalog. All I have to do is log on to my account, search for the book/cd/dvd I want and request the item for pick-up at my preferred branch. It's that easy. Just perfect for the busy mom.

So what are you waiting for? Search for the closest library near you!

  1. I don't know what I would do w/o our library. Kyle loves to go to just play with the trains and toys. I think I enjoy the story times as much as the kids!
