Our First Visit to the Library with Toddler

Last week we visited the public library. It was the first library visit of our son, so he was really excited with his new experience.

At home we encourage him to read books and we always surround him with books that are good for toddlers. When he was few months old, we introduced him some baby storytime books too. However, we bought most of these books for him. Recently he received new books from Josh & Cherrie subscription box service and Toddle.sg .So he has enough new books to read at home and he loves reading books.

Ready to go to the library.He loves the bags received from Itsmybag.sg and wanted to use one of the bags for this visit.

He also receives one book from his Playgroup library and he has some idea that he needs to return the library book after reading. Although I planned to visit the library with him from long time, it was always postponed. And finally we did it!

The excited kid wanted to walk to the library and he didn’t feel tired! ๐Ÿ™‚

When we visited the Kids World Fair last week, we also received some brochures and a book from National Library Board Singapore which encourages young kids to read. That made us really wanting to visit the nearby library.

I always had doubt of my sonโ€™s behavior inside the library. As this is the first visit and he is too active, I prepared him along the week for the library visit. I always mentioned him that he cannot talk loud, he needs to sit and read books and finally he needs to return the books which he borrows from the library.

Inside the library.He read many books.

It seems the little guy absorbed the all things that we told him. He behaved really well inside the library. He was so quiet and excited with lots of books to read. Finally he borrowed few books from the library and these days our home is full of reading activities! We had a great first visit to the library!

It looks like a great day. I spend a lot of time at the library with my four kids, and our new town has a fantastic library. Our kids go to robotics and science classes, and toddler time and reading time is just amazing with the librarians performing, playing music and more. Our new library even has a closed off kids section, so that the kids don't have to be quiet all the time.

I'm glad kids are still going to libraries! It was one of my favorite places to visit in grade school.
