Love Your Library – One Mom’s Journey

September is Love Your Library month and while we encourage and appreciate your monetary donations, it is equally as enriching to have a patron share their library story. Laura Zimmerman, library patron and mother of Evie (6), Renna (4), and Micah (3), recently shared her thoughts on reading as a family:

Cover: The Read Aloud Family

“Last year, I read The Read-Aloud Family: Making Lasting and Meaningful Connections with your Family by Sarah Mackenzie, and it transformed the way I viewed reading with my kids. Instead of randomly picking books off the library shelf (though we have found gems that way too!), I started being more thoughtful about the kind of books we read, noticing authors and illustrators more, and using the extensive Pittsburgh library system to request more book titles. Bringing new books home from the library is always a great day in our house!
