The 10 Coolest Libraries for Kids

It's summer time and one of the biggest summer time treats for kids are the summer reading programs their local libraries host. I grew up enjoying spending time at the library and it's something my kids look forward to doing as well. Have you wondered what the 10 coolest libraries are for kids? I know I have and recently Online College Courses posted a list of what they thought were the 10 coolest libraries here.

Their #1 pick is the Seattle Public Library, followed by the Santa Maria Library, Costen's Children's Library in NJ, the Trove at White Plains Public Library and then the Almere Library in the Netherlands. Be sure to visit the link above to see which libraries made the list.

What's your favorite public library to visit?
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
