Library card sign up month! Is that not the best? I love that they have an official month promoting library goodness! I always said that when i have kids, taking them to library is going to be a special treat. I want them to looove reading as much as i do. Getting out of the house, going to a room designated solely for children's books, allowing them to have free reign over the books they choose! They'll take their little canvas bags proudly to the desk and "pay" for the books themselves. Costing me zero money? Yes, please!
I see I have thought about this waaay too much, but I can't quite help myself! It is disheartening to hear young people say they hate to read, or they stop reading once they get out of school. Or they update their Facebook status five thousand times a day with "I'm bored. Text me. I'm bored." Read a flippin' book, and you won't be bored! We must start young, my friends, and promote reading for pleasure.
So if your little ones, your big ones, or you need library cards, get thee to a library.
