I am a big fan of the library and thankfully so are my kids. Don’t get me wrong, I can spend hours in the book store too, but the library is a special place to us.
We visit the library on a weekly basis to browse the shelves, use the computer, and take classes.
So a library gift set seemed like the perfect gift to put together for my boys.
Little B loves to play library at home, he stacks all of the books up high. Then we spread them out and enjoy reading them together.
Well, I know now everything is done with a computer and scanner, but when I was growing up we had call numbers and cards that got stamped when we checked books out. Wow, that makes me sound really old. hehe!
I decided that was exactly how I would put together a Library set for the kids.
I purchased a basket full of books. If buying new isn’t an option you can check out a thrift store, library sale, or a used book store for great deals. I also bought a pack of library card pouches, library cards, and a date stamper. I decided not to glue the pouches into our books, so that they can reuse them, but this is totally up to you. You could have a specific basket of books for library play that you bring out.
What is the last thing our library needed? A sign, of course. I made the sign you see in the picture above, on the computer, added a few stickers and then laminated it. Viola!!! Gift set ready. O, I can see it already, we’ll be playing library everyday.
