In this day in age with the obsessive use of computers, iPads and cellphones, the public library seems to have fallen by the wayside. My daughter and I are frequent visitors at the public library. The public library has so many free learning opportunities for children. The library in our neighborhood has free story times, puppet shows, exhibits, etc.
Sometimes we just go and visit the children’s corner to read books and color. Of course you have your Gymboree learning centers and similar places, but sometimes those places can get expensive and honestly I think they are way overrated.
What I try to do is find as many free resources as I can that are provided by the county where my child can learn and enjoy herself. Why spend money if you don’t have to? The Public Library is a great solution. Your children can develop a true love of reading while having fun.
Take some time out and visit your public library you might be surprise at what you find.
