The Library Archives and a Love of Books

Our little girl has a love of books and was really excited to browse the books at her school’s week of hosting the travelling book fair.  She had been promised a new book from us and after a quick perusal of the shelves, made a bee-line for What the Ladybird Heard Next
by Julia Donaldson.

This surprised me a little because she tends to be much more into chapter books than picture books these days.  She even got a new book storage cushion for Christmas!

It must be the very clever rhymes and therefore the rhythm of Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len’s misdemeanours!..

We’ve just recently moved house and joined the local library.  With our little girl enjoying reading so much, we were keen to get registered as soon as possible.

The ‘switch over’ from our old library got me to looking at the history of our old library accounts.  You might call them ‘the archives’.

You can just about barely (!) see in our little girl’s account that she has borrowed 289 books since she joined as a baby.  And that’s not including the books she’s got a home, some of which she has read over and over and over again!

Thankfully, the world of books is still at her fingertips and she loves to go along with us and using the machine to take out and return books.

  1. It’s great when your children read isn’t it? LP is a big reader, he’s just started reading chapter books and is enjoying them. We’re even thinking about getting him a Kindle!
    Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

  2. Hi Carol, my daughter loves books too, but the library here isn’t up to much so we bought most of the books or swapped books. As soon as Kindles were available we got her one and although she still prefers a ‘real’ book, she is never short of something to read.

    I hope your daughter continues enjoying books.
