Joshua's First Trip to the Library

There are two places that I have been dying to take Joshua, but simultaneously nervous about due to the incredible amount of germs.  One of these places is the library.  I was a rookie librarian during the swine flu scare so I am perfectly aware of what lives on those books and tables.

Today, we threw caution to the wind and braved the library.  I loaded the stroller with the books that needed to be returned, Joshua, and ample amounts of hand sanitizer.  (I'm not kidding.)

After teaching my nephew the abbreviated version of the Dewey Decimal System.  I sanitized my hands and shared some books with Joshua.

He took storytime very seriously.   Then I sanitized my hands again.

The little guy mostly stayed in his stroller while I searched the catalog for books, sanitized my hands and helped my niece and nephew find books.  My niece did a great at keeping the stroller moving Joshua could relax.

I've dreamed of taking this picture for a long time.

Love this. I also use ample hand sanitizer when I'm at the library. Still. I would do it even if I didn't have kids. :)

So... maybe are you guys up for a visit in the next month or so?
