Are you ready to say goodbye to Summer? Did you have a bucket list that you were able to complete?
I still remember when my kids were young, and they were excited to participate in the summer reading program. I must say that the public library system in our area was amazing. I lived in Utah for ten years and the Salt Lake County Library has many libraries in its system. They have a nice reading program and, in the day, when I had young children, it was very fun to go and sign up for their summer activities.
If you were not able to go to your public library this summer, because you were having fun at the beach, the pool, visiting family, or just enjoying your time in other ways, is never too late to go. Even though the first Monday of September is the last day of Summer, that doesn’t mean that you cannot keep finding new books and find activities at your local library.
If you still have young children at home, go to your local library and see all the fun activities they have available. They have story time usually in the fall and winter, some libraries have Toddler Story time and others have Preschool story time. There are also programs for grades 6 to 12 and they have fun activities as well. If you are into learning new languages, ask your local librarian for bilingual books, either in Spanish, French, or any other language that you want to learn or you want your kid to learn. Introduce your little kid to new vocabulary, travel with your imagination to new places and cities, and see how many new words you can learn together.
The days will become shorter and colder and that’s the perfect excuse to find a good book, a soft blanket, and a cozy space to read.
