A peek into today’s library haul – minus the books I got for myself, I got a little excited and added those to my nightstand stack immediately after getting home. Today’s haul includes a few Gail Gibbons books, a few Be a ____ Detective and a few Let’s Read and Find Out Science books. Also lots of nature books since I’m going to be sharing a bunch of nature resources on Instagram this month.
We got a great and diverse haul from the library today. Some we’ve had before, some are new-to-us and some we’ve already started diving into!
Lately every time we go to the library I think “next week our haul will be smaller” (because I generally try to take out less books in the summer) but somehow the stack never really seems to get any smaller . . . There are lots in here I am looking forward to reading. the Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science I had requested from the library last fall and it only came to me now, you better believe we are going to read through it as much as possible before needing to bring it back in three weeks.
Last week our library didn’t get any holds in but we are back on track this week! Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot I’m looking forward to from this stack. I’m determined to actually read The Prairie Thief this time since I’ve gotten it out a few times and never read it. And Just Open the Door sounds good. I’m currently feeling over picture books though and feel meh about the rest of the stack. But who knows, maybe there are some treasures in here!
Monday = Library Day
I know Monday’s get a bad rap but I’ve figured out a secret to Monday! Here it is: plan something you look forward to on Monday (or whatever other day may be your tough day of the week). For me that means going to the library each Monday. It is the day our books come in from other libraries across the province and it doesn’t require being out of the house for hours, it’s just a short trip to get another stack of books with hundreds of dollars in value for absolutely free. I’m excited about a number of our books on this week’s stack. Off to go read some…
Here’s a look at this week’s library haul! Ephraim got out the body books, Rae’s are the top two chapter books (minus the audiobook) and mine are the ones about backyard chickens (for my one day dream). Upcoming themes: gardening and bees! I love that the library has this nifty feature that lets us know the value of the books we get out each week. The library really does save us thousands each year:
