I got this off of Facebook but I love it SO MUCH! I LOVE the library and have since I was a kid. I know I've written about this more than once on my blog but I think that libraries are so important and I hope the never go away. The library is important for all of the reasons listed above and it has been a haven in my life more than once.
I take my kids to our local library once a week (often twice per week in the summer and during school breaks) for new books and fun events. My kids and I adore being able to explore a new world in a book - whether it's one of fiction and completely imagination based or nonfiction and we learn about someone or something in our world.
The libraries in our country - and all over the world - are important. I, for one, am super thankful for the library!
