In the centre of Birmingham, I overheard this exchange between a mother and her 5 or six year old daughter:
Mum: ...and then we'll go to the Library. Daughter (bouncing up and down with excitement): Yay! I love going to the library! Yippee!
Talk about the perfect kid.
On the subject of libraries, we now have a library literally four doors down from our house. It's pretty tiny, and has somewhat eccentric opening hours, but... a library! Practically on our doorstep! Better still, you can reserve any book in the entire Birmingham library system online, and have it delivered to your local library.
