I was sharing reading program stories with my sister Natalee and she told me about how one summer she got in trouble from the local library because she would check out books and go out to the front lawn and read them all and than go back in and turn them all in and check out a whole new load of books. She was little so she was only reading beginner reader books not chapter books. After about her fourth trip into the library in the same day she was told that she could only check out a certain amount of books in a day. It all ended ok because she still ended up winning the grand prize of an alarm clock radio. I had to laugh because I know I would have done the exact same thing.
I have to put in a little plug in for the Pikes Peak Library District. I love their faciclities, and their online library is so easy to use. I know that this may not seem like a big deal, but if you have ever lived in a small town with very limited facilities and slim to no book selection it gives you a whole new apprecation for having so much at your finger tips. Not to mention all the reading programs and story times they offer for the girls.
So if your a Colorado Springs resident don't pass up the adult reading program, you get amazing prizes like a hot chocolate mug and Panera Bread gift card, yum!!! ok so the prizes aren't so exciting but its all about the sense of accomplishment anyway right?
Checking out books so easy my two year old has it mastered
P.S. Foote asked and it is alright to count audiobooks you listen to on the iPod.
