We have been here less than a week and we have already been to the library twice. It is great, being able to take the 10minute walk to the library.
The first thing I did Monday morning was to apply for a Ontario driver’s license, so that I would have an ID with an Ottawa address, we had a rental car so that worked out well. We went to get a library card and get some books for the kids to read and got some information about the story time. So on Wednesday I took Natalie to story time while the boys just hung out to read at the childrens’ section.
The movies here are all free too, so I have request some for myself and Kyle since we have no TV, I don’t miss it at all though. We keep ourselves so busy with the homeschooling and the kids playing that no one really misses it. The Carlingwood library has such a great selection of books and audios too. I have borrowed french and mandarin audios for the kids to listen to. It is great as they can listen and play at the same time.
I guess I never really appreciated the library before, they have museum passes for the family. There is no cost to these passes and it admits a family of 5. But since they are so popular, there is a long wait list for them. I have put my request in, I am about 150 on the wait list, wonder when I will get the pass…
