Our Local Library

I know I've mentioned it before, but I have to say again how thankful I am for our local library.  It's not only large, but it's also part of a huge network, so I can get practically any movie or book through inter-library loan, saving me lots of money (which I then have to repay due to damaged books/movies from my kids.)

Their wonderful children's department has all sorts of fun crafts and reading incentives.

They have adult incentives too (although these I gladly have to pay for.)

One night I took the kids to the Pajama Storybook time.  They were very excited to be able to wear their pajamas and took great care (great, agonizing, time-consuming) care on exactly which stuffed animal to bring.  As fitting their personalities, Gabe brought Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch), Boo brought her Hallowed (i.e. Hello) Kitty, and Peter brought his roaring dinosaur Rexie.

Amy, the director of the children's department, is a fantastic reader.  The kids were transfixed.

Peter especially like the story "Where the Wild Things Are".  For some reason I've never read him that one.  I could see that he felt a kinship with the boy Max.

Or perhaps he felt a kinship with the wild things.  That's more likely, actually.
