With our love of books, we decided we needed to visit a local library. Rumor on the street was that the Southfield Public Library was new and fantastic. The rumors were true. We each grabbed a stack of books and headed into a reading nook. The nook was a hollowed out tree complete with pillows. The children's area is truly a wonder for young readers. Besides the tree, there is a large throne upon which to read, a dragon's lair complete with snoring dragon, a puppet theater, puzzles, and a gazillion children's books easily displayed. I actually took pictures; I was so impressed. If you are interested, you can view a tour here. I hope one of our local libraries adopts some of the cool reading areas this library sports.
