I took B to look round his new school last week and he really enjoyed it until we got to their library.... he looked at it and announced loudly 'I've got more books than that at home!'
I'm not quite sure how to feel about that comment, proud that he loves books and has lots at home, mortified that we look like the crazy obsessed with books family or sad that the school didn't appear to have a lot of books! I then took him to my workplace and showed him all the books there and he was more impressed (it confirmed for me I wanted to work there when I saw their library!)

Did you feel B's school had a small library. At my son's school a lot of the school library books are actually in the classrooms much of the time. I think you should be proud he loves books. I think it is wonderful for children to have lots of books at home. My son has lots of books and we spend lots of time in our local library. I also have far to many books and need to do a cule. One of my friends has so many books, she has wall shelves and vernicer bookcases. She did study English and now works as a senior broadcast journalist at the BBC. She has also done a masters in theatre critism and a diploma on Shakespear. I love her house and all the books

The library was kind of what I expected for a primary school but his current/old one had more. We have had a cul of books recently and I took them to be weighed and we took 170kg of books and that probably wasn't half of our books I do love books and use the library a lot. It is the gift that people always know to get for the children or I and it will always be appreciated!

Be proud he loves books, I are really happy that disco alreaddy brings books to us to read to him all the time. He also likes pretending to read anything he can lay his hands on.
What is your local library going to be like?
Ours lends to the local scholl so if you are in after they have been in the selection can be poor.
