Libraries Are a Magical Place

good book

I know I’ve been MIA for a week now and thank you all so much for baring with me, visiting the blog and keeping up with my little daily adventures on Positively Panicked’s Facebook and Instagram. Last week, was rough. Luna has decided that sleeping at night is not for her. The two of us have had A LOT of late night bonding time, like a little too much time together. I’m fairly certain Belle has permanently taken my spot next to Husband in bed. I was also hit with a weird and painful virus. Between every thing, I just desperately needed a break from something, and since Moms don’t get vacations, blogging was the only thing that could stand to survive without me for a week.

But, I’m back bitches!

Sorry, that’s a little uncalled for, but it just felt like the right sentiment.

Even though, I was down and out last week, I managed to find some daily adventures. (These adventures were made possible by lots of coffee.) I decided to take Luna to the local public library. It’s been about a hundred years since I last went to a public library, but I have many fond memories of skimming the children’s books, reading in the big comfy chairs, learning to use the card catalog and of course, getting my very own library card. When I entered the public library with Luna all of those fond memories came rushing back as soon as I stepped in to the air-conditioned room and got a whiff of the hundreds and hundreds of old and new books. Is there any greater smell?

I’ve got to say going to a library is just as cool, if not cooler, than when we were kids. I mean, it’s basically like shopping for free. You can get books, DVD’s and magazines, use the Internet, play games and attend little shows and readings for free. FREE. And the cherry on top? It’s nice and quiet. No sales clerk is offering to help of following you around. There’s not horrible elevator music playing loudly while you browse. Plus, there are over-sized comfy chairs everywhere just begging you to sit and read. The only thing that would make a library better is coffee.

I posted a photo of Luna having a blast at the library on Facebook (because that’s what Facebook is for, right? Look at me! I’m an awesome Mom who does awesome stuff like take my cute baby to the library. Go me!) Anyways, a friend of mine commented with this little gem…

Libraries are almost as magical as Disney parks…almost.

What a perfect way to describe a library. They are truly magical. Luna really did have fun pulling books off shelves, chewing on the binds and smiling at everyone who looked her way. I hope she continues to enjoy the library and reading as she grows. I hope she finds the magic between the pages and learns that adventure is never far away when you’ve got access to books.

Thank you libraries for offering such a magical world to each and everyone of us!
