We used to go to the library regularly, but haven’t been since last summer.  With N getting reading books from school and refusing to read his books at home himself, a library visit seems a lot of effort if I need to have him with me.

But this weekend N had requested to visit the library and get some books out. We dug out his library card, paid an extortionate £1.50 for the nearest car park (no free parking in our town and no 30 minute options) and N spent a happy 5 minutes choosing books.  I think we spent longer using the computers to borrow them than it did to actually choose the books.

Living Arrows 2017 week 12 - library choices

Living Arrows badge


  1. So lovely to see children enjoying the library, they are such rare things to have these days so it seems.

  2. I love that photo – it looks like he’s just grabbing random books off the shelves and passing them back to you! We’re lucky to live close enough to town to walk into the library, I really should get around to getting Max a library card! #livingarrows

  3. What a pain. I reckon all public places like libraries should have free parking for people using them. We haven’t been to a library in ages and really must take the kids soon. What did he choose?

  4. We used to go to the library quite frequently, and stay for Rhyme Time. Since moving down South 2 years ago we haven’t even got library cards whoops!

  5. We love going to the library Blake just loves books and us reading to him. #livingarrows

  6. My two are the same, spend very little time choosing books and would rather play with the tatty toys they have there instead. I love a good old browse of the library myself. #LivingArrows

  7. We’re long overdue a visit to the library but last time we came away with DVD’s as well x
