Have you ever been to your local library with your group? Libraries have so much to offer children! They are packed with wonderful treasures. We all know that children love books. From princess stories to stories about trucks or monsters that live under their bed, books have the power to satisfy children's very diversified interests. What's more, there are so many books, so many ways to explore them...
Now that you have understood my unconditional love of books, let's get back to why libraries are so interesting for early childhood educators. Although books are extremely fascinating, they can also be quite expensive. Filling an entire bookshelf can therefore be quite costly. Since you can borrow books from your local library, a trip to the library can be highly economical.
Most neighbourhoods boast a library. No matter where you live, there is most likely a library not too far away. The surface area, the types of books that are available, and the activities offered will vary from one library to the next. Many libraries offer interesting activities that can often be enjoyed free of charge. Do not hesitate to ask for a copy of the schedule of upcoming activities.
Whether you choose to visit the library for an organized activity, a monthly visit, or out of the blue, a trip to the library is worthwhile. Some children may have already gone to the library with their parents. Others may have never heard of a library before. Have fun introducing them to this very special place.
Here are a few things that will guarantee your trip to the library is a success.
If you have the chance to provide children with an occasional or regular library visit, please do! Books provide so many learning opportunities for children and unfortunately, not all children have access to books at home...
Enjoy your trip to the library!
