  1. I use my library constantly and the Libby app for audio books. What a resource! I donate books and also find great books to buy from their donated books library. Even books in French.

    One of my favorite stories about my library is from when my kids were little. They fell in love with a graphic novel series called Bone. The library carried all 9 books in the series. My kids wanted me to read them too but I was busy learning French. Then I noticed the library had the first volume in French! I read it and asked if they’d consider buying volume 2 in French. They ended up buying 2 through 9!

    Other examples of books that my kids read and wanted me to read that I was able to find in French at my library include:

    Harry Potter
    Geronimo Stilton
    Magic Treehouse
    Twilight
    The Golden Compass
    Artemis Fowle
    Leviathan
    Narnia

    It was great. As they were learning to read independently, I was beginning to read French and the library could support all of us.

    The book I’m reading now with Emma at Words and Peace is one I bought for 50 cents form their used book store.

    Sorry this is so long but I’ve only scratched the surface of all the gifts my library has given me and my family.

  2. I must admit that nowadays I read more online. But generally in Denmark the libraries are places where people meet, adults and children. On a rainy day during summer holidays, people would meet there, play games, read, talk (in special places), choose books to take home 😉 Libraries are very popular in Denmark, especially in the countryside.
