The Library

I don't know about you, but I tend to forget about this form of free (and educational) entertainment for my kids. THE LIBRARY!
I'm trying to be better about it, and we did recently get our library card.
Our local library is great! Every Monday and Thursday at 10:30 there is a 45 minute program for kids--with a theme that a librarian centers her readings, activities, and crafts around.
We usually check 3 to 5 books a piece, and the kids pour over them for hours (okay for tens of minutes)! We also enjoy checking out books on CD--especially for those long car trips.
There was a huge promotion during the summer where if the kids read (or were read) 10 books, they got to go to a HUGE city-wide party and receive lots of freebies, including free books and lots of free kids' meals from different restaurants.
I know every library is different, but the point is, don't forget your local library!!
