After getting a card, Mad Natter wanted to find a book. Our first search, for Plants vs Zombies, turned up one book at a far away branch of the library, which is not as much fun as checking one out today. So we searched for Minecraft. Imagine my utter shock to find The Beginner's Handbook on the shelves! We wrote down the call number, and took off in search of the book. After looking at the labels on the ends of the stacks, and comparing them to our call number, we made our way back and sure enough, found the only copy on the shelf. PHEW!!
Next stop? The toys! Mad Natter played with all the toys in the children's section while I went looking for a couple books for read aloud purposes. Amelia Bedelia has changed. A lot. I'm a little afraid to even try looking for Mrs Piggle-Wiggle at this point. Anyway, after a good hour and change being the only kid in the library, a pair of siblings turned up, and all three boys played in the general vicinity of each other for another 20 minutes before I called an end to the adventure (I wanted to go to the bookstore to see if I could "say it isn't so!" at Amelia Bedelia, but it IS so. I'm sad), and we went to the checkout. Mad Natter read the instructions on the touch screen all on his own, promptly followed them, and checked out his book on his card. It's a big day in our house - the first library card. How big he's gotten!
