Today we took a little trip to the public library in our neighborhood.
Although, come to think of it, we were at the library yesterday too, but that was a different location. We spent about an hour there, reading stories, making selections, and then finalizing those selections, since by that point, our little table was just about covered with books. Now of course, they were all wonderful, and it is always hard to decide! Some had gorgeous watercolors, others had sketches. Some were new with shiny covers, while others were old with worn pages. But I am certain they all had wonderful stories waiting to be told. We brought them to the checkout woman, who suddenly announced,
"But you have 47 books on loan already!"
She suggested that we return some before taking any others home. So we turned and left, with no new stories to carry home. :-(
Hoy fuimos a la biblioteca publica en nuestro barrio, y despues de mas o menos una hora alli, habiamos encontrado varios libros bonitos. Repasamos las selecciones varias veces para realmente llevar solo las que realmente quisimos, porque eran muchas. Libros hermosos con aquarelas o dibujos, unos con tapas brillosas, otras con paginas ya viejas, pero todos con cuentos aún para conocer. Las lleve a la senora encargada de prestamos, y me medio anuncio -
"pero tienes 47 siete libros ya prestados.!"
No pudimos llevar los libros a casa hoy. :-(
