Oh that looks like such a great thing to do. Those kids are enjoying those chairs and enjoying the books too. That is terrific. You have a great day.

Congrats on the new library, looks like everything is a hit. Nothing better in a child's growing up period than a good library. My DD used to send postcards to her favorite librarians when we were on vacation.

The first thing I did before reading your post is look at your profile to see if you live in California... and you do! I live in Virginia but my daughter and I went on a dream vacation recently to see her best friend who had moved three years ago to Oakland CA. The picture on your main page could BE their front yard. I loved CA and all the trees and plants!

Now to the post... I am so glad your community was able to get a library rebuilt!!!! I tried to take my kids to the library often when they were young... they would leave with armfuls of books!
