These are a few of my favorite things-Boston #1

Several people have asked me to post what my favorite things about Boston are. SO, I am going to do a series called "These are a few of my favorite things", both of Boston and Wichita (since we are returning in less than 6 months!!!).

My first post is about one of our favorite places in Cambridge. It's the Main Public Library of Cambridge. Apparently it was under renovation for over a year and re-opened a few months before we moved here. This place is AMAZING! They have a huge dvd section and no limit on how many you check out. The entire 3rd floor is the children's section. There is even 2 family bathrooms on that floor. An underground parking garage makes it extremely easy to get there and park close. We visit this jewel of entertainment at least once a week, sometimes twice! The library back home doesn't even come close to this one. This is one, of the many things, we will miss when we move back.

This is the new addition. All 3 floors with an underground garage.

This is the old library, it is still in use and functional with several study rooms and a resource area.

Today was no different. We went to the library and left with a Wii game, 9 dvds and 12 books. Allie got very excited when she saw the cover of this chapter book that had 4 girls on it. She insisted on getting it, so it looks like we will be reading a few chapters to her each day. "This book ROCKS!" was what she yelled in the backseat on the way home. I'm glad she's so enthusiastic about reading... I hope it lasts!

This is a picture of her on the way home. :)

Ummm, not to be too dorky, but what is the name of the book? You know the curiosity is killing me.
