Why libraries are good for children

Hey readers,

Today is take your child to the library day and therefore I want to write about why I feel it is a positive activity to do regular with your child.

Firstly, if you make it a fun day out for your child, such as getting on a bus, grabbing a drink and checking out the books that are available at your local library. This can be a positive influence on the way that child views reading and furthermore can create excitement and a sense of adventure.

The library is such a brilliant place as it is open to everyone no matter what your background. At the library there is so much choice and diverse range of books to take out for free so you don’t have to worry about how much it is going cost buying books.

Going to the library can give your child the sense of independence in choosing the books that they like the look of.  This can also help your child to get motivation to want to read them as it is something that they are interested in the first place.

With getting your children to join up with the library, they have their own library card, meaning that they have there own responsibility.  It teaches the child to look after books and also makes sure that the books get back on time or they will quickly learn that if you do not follow rules there  will be consequences. Personally, I feel this is such a valuable lesson to learn for the child to learn in life that with choice.

Giving the child the opportunity in accessing the library services allows that child to learn, understand and create imagination.  It can help with their education, learning and allow the child to explore. It can also give the child confidence in themselves as they learn more and more information.

Cheers for reading X

  1. I love the library and not just because it’s quiet lol. We’ve yet to master the trip the library with The Boy as he gets overwhelmed when he can’t mess about in the lift lol. I do make sure he has lots of books at home though and one of these days, who knows…we might go to the library and the visit will be longer than five minutes. 😉 X
