Checking for books.
If I remember it right, this is the second time K and I visited our local library since the school started in August. We couldn’t attend the Story Time for All Ages on Tuesday evenings because our bedtime is around 7:00 P.M. and the story time is scheduled at 6:30 P.M. The story time on Wednesdays and Fridays are for toddlers and are scheduled during school hours. So obviously we’re not able to go as well.
This afternoon we got the chance to go to the library because K wanted to borrow DVDs. We have a collection of kids’ movies on DVDs at home but it gets boring, you know. She enjoys being at the library. She reads a few books. Sometimes I read to her. What fascinated her most was searching for books and DVDs at the computer kiosk. When K started to try using the computer kiosk, she used a step stool to reach the keyboard. Now, she doesn’t have to use one anymore. She can reach the computer keyboard and she’s very happy about that. This way K will know if her favorite books like Pete the Cat and Hippoposites and DVDs like Kubo and My Neighbor Totoro are IN or OUT. The library is one of the places to take your children for learning and reading. There are activities and special events for kids’ according to age and interest that local libraries organize all the time.
I need to allot more library time on the weekends. As for the story time, we will catch up on that in the summer. We always participate in the Summer Reading Club.

It’s been a while since our last visit to the library. I got quite busy with other stuff so we missed a few story times since summer arrived. My cousin told me about an upcoming event for kids this week that involves arts and crafts activity and movie showing. So I registered my darling daughter to join and I found out that they are having a Pirate Day.
It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day event at the library. When I told my DD about the activity, she got very excited that she kept on talking about Jake and the Neverland pirates on Disney Junior. Then she kept asking where we going.
The event started with a movie about the Muppets at noon but we did not registered on that because I knew we won’t be able to be at the showing on time. So I just joined the 2 P.M. activity schedule. My cousin and her kids were already there when we arrived. The arts and crafts of the Pirate Day include pirate hats, skull necklaces, and eye patches.
DD in her pirate hat, eye patch, and skull necklace that she maded and decorated. She really enjoyed the day!
My darling daughter really had fun today! She and her cousin Audrey enjoy being together especially on events like this one. And guess who came to visit? It’s Capt. Jack Sparrow!
Of course, I won’t miss a photo with Captain Jack Sparrow. 🙂
Awww…I so heart Johnny Depp. He’s my ultimate crush (foreign celebrity). Movie time followed the arts and crafts. I thought it was cancelled because they the closed the kids’ story time room where the activity was held. Well, the movie showing was in the theater room across the lounge area of the library. It’s a Peter Pan movie and it wasn’t animated which I like better because the kids will see real actors and creatures on the screen. The cousins kept asking ‘what happen to who’ and ‘where they’re going’…sorts of stuff.
It was close to 5 P.M. when the movie was over and we were hungry. We had a little snack and headed to the department store to buy a bridal shower gift for the next day’s party.
All in all, we had a great Pirate Day and the kids had fun! That’s the most important.
