After my daughter was born, I was grateful for baby time at the library
When I first moved to Surrey, I was 7 months pregnant and I wasn’t working. Being a lover of books, within the first two weeks of moving I got my library card. As a kid, the library was a safe haven of endless possibilities of adventure and a place to escape from daily life. I always felt safe and at peace in the library. The love of libraries has only grown throughout my life. After my daughter was born, I was grateful for baby time at the library, being a new resident I didn’t have any mom friends and a chance to interact with other moms was sorely needed. I was able to checkout books on advice for sleep training and baby food recipes.
Now that my daughter is two, and the library has reopened (woo hoo!) we go every other week to get new books. My daughter has the same love for books as I do, and can spend lengthy amounts of times skimming through books. Libraries are a big part of our lives and I always want my children to value and support them.
