Saturday was the first day for months that we spent time in a library.
We are lucky, lucky, lucky that where we live, in Perth, Western Australia, public spaces have opened again. The City of Perth Library is such a beauty. It was great seeing the children settled back in there, finding books, then a comfortable spot to read.
I had a dreamy browse of the shelves myself and we brought home some superb new reading matter. Libraries are so brilliant at showing you books you would otherwise never know existed. And then you get to take them home for free.
More about these another day…
