After we picked Sam up from school it was time to pick up our vegetables at our CSA. On the way home we stopped at one of the little libraries in our neighbourhood. The motto of this library is "Need a book, Take a book. Have a book, leave a book." Sam loves stopping at these things and getting books, when there are age appropriate ones for him to pick up. Today he got The Cloud Book by Tomie de Paola and a "Birds & Blooms" magazine, featuring nuthatches. Yes, my child is weird.
I love the idea of the little libraries, and that there are three that I know of in our neighbourhood. Dave and I may have to talk about putting one in our yard. Sam loves them so much and I love that he is excited about getting books. What cool things does your neighbourhood/city do which really appeals to you?
