Having Fun at the Library

What Can You Find at the Library

Does your family love the library as much as mine does? I have a fun post over on Blessed Beyond a Doubt about all of the cool stuff you can find at a library. Be sure to print out your library scavenger hunt!

This song is always running through my head when we visit the library –> “Having fun isn’t hard, when you’ve got a library card.”

A few of the books we currently have checked out:

a million little ways
A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live

what einstein told his cook
What Einstein Told His Cook: Kitchen Science Explained

what's smaller than a pygmy shrew
