I won this bag from Juliette Cross. Used it for the first time to return items to the library and pick up items. I went in to pick up my hold books and came out with more then I planned. My son, who's 5, is on spring break and he was with me. We got movies and kid books to add to my adult books.

 

My lovely bag is overflowing!

Welcome To My Library #NationalLibraryWeek

 

Welcome to my library, the Millbrae Library!

 

 

What I like about my library:

 

It’s got a great atmosphere, it’s warm and open.

 

Everything is easy to find.

 

Their online holds is wonderful and easy to use. If you want an eBook or Audio the selection isn’t bad.

 

Look at these great books I’ve picked up so far this year, 2017, from the library:

 

 

The kids area is awesome. It’s so inviting. It’s open. They have a play area and several quiet reading spots. The kids can browse the books easily. My son LOVES it. When kids enjoy the area, you know you have a great spot. 

 

Take a look below at the kids area at my library:

 

 

Friends of the Millbrae Library

 

One of the fist things I did when I moved to my new location was get my library card and joined the Friends of the Millbrae Library. It’s a great way to help support the library.

 

I’ve donated several books that I no longer needed. And, inside the library they have a dedicated book store area. I always check out this area every time I go in. I never know what I might find and I’ve picked up some great books, for nothing. 

 

Check it out: I bought these books at The Friends of the Millbrae Library Book Store:
