Libraries to Spark a Love of Reading by Janice Lynn

I recently saw a photo of a library that really caught my attention. It was a photo of the children's area and I was delighted to learn that it was in my home state and only about an hour from where I live. I visited their website and their Facebook page and think I've completely fallen for their program. It appears quite magical and someplace where I'd like to go and sit and read for hours and hours--which is what I imagine whomever designed it intended. The library is the John P Holt Brentwood Library. Just looking at the photos makes me wish I worked there...although I might get fired for hiding away with a great book. :) 

That got me to thinking about libraries and what a great resource they are to communities. My local town has a small library, but they offer summer reading programs that I believe are wonderful. I brought my kids when they were small (and may be hauling to Grand to Brentwood soon for a library visit). I think I enjoyed those summer programs as much as they did. I think how much fun it must be for children to come here to check out their favorite books and to discover new stories to take them on imaginative adventures and what a great way to inspire kids to develop a love of reading.

Does your town/community have a local library? Do they offer programs for children and adults? When is the last time you visited a library? What's your favorite library and why?
