A Library Card
Last night at dinner, Katherine quieted the group, telling us all that she had a special announcement.
“I got a new library card today. I lost my old one!”
And then at bed time as we talked about our favorite parts of the day, Katherine said, “Getting my library card!”
And then when I asked her what kind of story she wanted me to tell her as part of our usual bedtime routine, she said, “Tell me about when you got your library card.”
Wow. I’ve always known what a special thing a library card can be but seeing it through the eyes of a five year really tells the whole story…
I don’t have a very good memory for my childhood (sadly), but I do remember getting my first library card at the public library. Yay for Katherine for appreciating her library card experience so much!
