A.J. Goes to the Library
I have been out in the world for almost a month now and I think I have the sleeping, eating and crying thing down.
Now I want to go to the library.
Maybe if I show some interest in Opening Day of baseball, my Dad will take me.
Nope. He's totally immersed.
M-m-m. What to do?
I need to get to the library to check out Polaris, the new online library catalog I've heard so much about.
It's all my Glammy talks about - how I can get better search results to find my library materials faster, how I can personalize my library experience by keeping track of my favorite books that my parents read to me, and I will even be able to rate, review and share titles with my other baby friends.
I have to get there.
I need to work on my Mom.
Pssst. Hey, Mom, over here. How can you resist this cute baby routine I am doing?
Well, that didn't work. Let's see if the adorable sleeping baby ploy works.
Score! She's got me dressed and ready to go, and I am stylin' if I do say so myself
Off we go!
Polaris, Tumblebooks and Baby Story Time, here I come!
There you are, Library. Yay!
OK, let's see. First I will hit the picture books - I want the latest Babar book, Goodnight Moon, Are you My Mother?...so many to choose from. If I can't find what I want, I will ask that nice librarian over there.
Then it's over to the DVDs (I can get 10 at a time - for free!), then off to Baby Story Time, and after that, I will probably crawl over to the preschool computers and give them a look. OK, I can't crawl yet, but my Mom will take me over there.
And then I'm going to...
***An hour later***
There is just so much to do at the library, I think I overdid it.
But I will be back. The library has materials and services for all ages of my life.
My parents have given me a good start by making the library an important part of my life.
I love you, Library!
And I love you, too, Polaris -- you are so easy to use, even a baby can do it!
