Mom's Library - Fall Books to Read (plus crafts and a snack)!

Last week I took the kids to the library for the first time since moving to Ohio and I signed up for a library card. They have a special card here for teachers where you get extra books and longer check-outs. The kids and I were really excited. 

The problem with the library is I did not plan it out all that well. I knew I was going to the library and I was going to get a card but I didn't know what I wanted for book...or heck, anything.  The kids went a little book crazy and started pulling random things off the shelf.  Lots of stuff we would never have read made it into the bag and it was a disaster.

I'm planning better this week.  I went online to our local library website and set aside some fun books.  Yup, all I have to do is show up and they'll be there waiting!  I will probably allow the kids to explore some but for me the hard work of finding the books is already done! 

This week...enjoy Mom's Library and my collection of FALL BOOKS to read and a snack to share!  Oh...and don't forget to enter the giveaway for Grandparents CD, mini washboard & maracas -- thanks to Crystal!
