Share a Story: What’s in Your Wallet

12 March 2009

The most valuable piece of plastic in your wallet is (drumroll, please) your LIBRARY CARD! They don’t charge you for your interest, the books are free to use, and there is no credit limit. As Adrienne and Jules point out, there may be the occasional fee, but it is put to good use.

subduedSort of makes me wish that I could personalize my library card the way I can personalize my credit card. Wouldn’t that just be too cool? Oh, the possibilities …mod

Can I have a hologram of me and one of my favorite characters? It would look mostly like me, but then, when you tilt it it would be, oh, Nancy Drew. It’s a security device … to protect against identity theft … really.

Okay, I’m back! Today we’re going to the library, beginning with Eva Mitnick and Elizabeth Bird taking us on tours of the Los Angeles Public Library and the New York Public Library, respectively. Here’s our lineup for today!

Day 4: A Visit to the Library
hosted by Eva Mitnick at Eva’s Book Addiction blog

Be sure to return to yesterday’s  Read Aloud Day, too. Aimee Buckner’s post about engaging kids in conversations about what you’re reading is at the Stenhouse Publishers blog, and we have new posts in our More Great Posts list.

As links go live, I’ll update this post. Done.
