library day

We took our first trip to the Dakota county library the other day. After living here for 6 months, I can't believe we hadn't bothered to get library cards yet! Perhaps not surprising considering that libraries are one of the most underused resources in our country...
I am loving our new local book nook.
I love feeling a bit more connected with our community.
I love that our library runs now involve time in the children's section... Browsing all of the bright+beautiful picture books, flirting with other little kids, watching puppet shows, and chasing Mr. G as he does his part to empty the shelves.
Loving that our new library has free admission passes to awesome places like the Minnesota Zoo & tons of local museums for anyone to check out. They are first come, first serve, and a little hard to come by,
but I love the anticipation that on any given trip we might be able to score these.
Love a fresh stack of inspiring craft and design picture books for me, because it's no secret that I haven't been able to sit myself down to start or finish a novel in the past year...
I love that the library is a total free for all.

Every time I check out books (which is a lot-- I'm a children's librarian), I like to do a rough total of the prices of the books in my head. I'm always so amazed that I get to borrow hundreds of dollars of materials for free!

I love the free museum passes too, I wish you the best of luck on getting your hands on the zoo pass, it's the most popular and the most worth it, I have yet to get my hands on the elusive pass but you can't pass it up if it's available, such a fun family activity.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...

How do I find out about those free passes?! I've been using the library for a few years and never knew about free tickets!
