Going to the library is such a treat in our household. Minneapolis has many great libraries, a handful of them within short driving distance (even walking or biking distance) from our house. The one we frequent the most is the Washburn Library on Lyndale.
What a beautiful children's area. Boo could spend hours climbing the ledge behind the seats.
Punky just wants to play with the magnetic games.
The crazy ceiling mural that my kids just can't get enough of. If you can't tell by the picture, the ceiling actually goes up into a cone-shape.
This space reminds me of a cathedral, with the tall windows and the vivid colors of the painting.
Yes, we finally got around to picking out some books. I grabbed a few board books for Punky, while Boo went to the Easy Reader section and selected a book about scarecrows and a book about tennis. I gave him an enthusiastic thumbs up. The important thing is that he's interested in books, right?
