Who’s got her own library card? Little Bird! Earlier this week, the two of us went on an excursion to Seattle Public Library’s Madrona Branch to get our cards. Library cards have certainly changed since the time I had my last card. For one, you can choose the design on your card: Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Seattle’s Central Library branch (designed by Rem Koolhaas), Mt. Rainier, a colorful children’s card, and the blue and white generic-looking card. Little Bird picked the Space Needle and I selected Pike Place Market.
After we got our cards and checked out two Mo Willems dvds (Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and others) we decided a new library card is most definitely a cause for celebration. And celebrate we did with a scoop of ice cream from Molly Moon’s.
I remember how special trips to the library were for me as a child. I’m so proud that my daughter loves books as much as I did, and hope her journey with books and reading continues to unfold in wondrous ways.
Read on Little Bird!
When I got my library card, that’s when my life began.
