On Going To The Library

Current Bedtime Faves

With the coming of fall, evening activities require some creative thinking. A turn in a new direction. No more after dinner trips to the park, bike rides or romps to the beach.

Which is a rather sad thought, one made easier by remembering about all of the fun things that you can do together as a family inside…

Our favourite activity is going to the library. Our local chapter is big and beautiful. Architecturally unique, it features wrap around arched windows, that run floor to ceiling on both floors. The moment it’s in view, the adventure begins.

Everything about the library is exciting to our kids. The big spiral staircase, the glass elevator, the long hallways perfect for exploring. the kid computers and games, the puzzles, the toys and of course, the BOOKS.

It’s like they’ve hit the toddler jackpot. We’re avid book lovers, the mister and I; something we didn’t have to try very hard at passing down to our children.

Little ones are naturally drawn towards books and keeping their library stocked can be expensive. Which is why book swaps, second-hand book stores are great. One of the best ways to keep a steady rotation of new books around is to go to the library of course.

Our eldest Wyndham has taken to asking to go to the library now, almost every night since our trip there last week. To be honest, we hadn’t been all summer long, having spent most of our waking moments together outside. He chose 5 books and we chose a few board books for Abby. We’ll go back one night this week and pick out some new ones! So simple. So pleasurable.

What are your favourite fall activities or outings that you do with your kids?
