Every Saturday my two boys, ages 6 and 4, wake up and ask “Is it Saturday? Can we go to the library?” As a former English major and a ever-lover of books, it warms my heart every time I hear the excitement and zest in their voices about going on our weekly excursion. Our local community library has changed with the times too by offering DVDs, Wii/XBox selections, an electronic check-out system, etc as well as overhauling the children’s section and playroom. Every Saturday when we walk through those doors, I get overwhelmed by the foundation my sons will have, instilling a love for learning, by utilizing their local library. Whether it be the smell of the books or the friendly smiles greeting us from the circulation desk, the library has become a sanctuary for our family.
