My first library card

I take my son to the library about once a week, its a great way to kill an hour on a rainy afternoon when your stuck indoors with an active toddler. I normally get him out about 4 books each time using my card. Yesterday when I got his books out they told me that they were changing the rules in a few months so that you could only get childrens books out using a childrens library card so would I like to get one for my son now?

So at the tender age of 1 my son has his own card with his name printed on the back. I have to say that (as you can see above) its the cutest thing ever and I'll get far more enjoyment out of using it than he will :)

    I know what I'd ask the librarian:

    What one is an adult with no children of one's own but who really likes children's books? Will they issue one a children's library card, too?

  2. Yeah - you know maybe I got it wrong as that does seem odd? At the time my son was trying to open the fire escape so I was only half listening. I mean what if you wanted to get books out for your nephew or something?

  3. That's adorable! I got my own library card when I was six because I insisted that I didn't want to use my mom's. It eventually broke in half. :)
