Children Know Best

Maggie* is a 4 year old daughter of Library Employee #3.

This is the conversation they had tonight, just before bed.

Maggie: Mommy it is important to go to school.
Me: Yes Maggie, but it is also important to go to sleep early. That way you have energy to learn new things at school. Now go to sleep.
Maggie: Mom you know what is even more important?
Me: What Maggie?
Maggie: Saving libraries.
Me: Okay Maggie, now you have to go to sleep. (I began to cry)
Maggie: Mom you know what we should do?
Me: Maggie it’s sleepy time.
Maggie: Mom we should give people pink save the libraries cards for their birthdays.
Me: Maggie l love you so much now we have to go to sleep.

I am so proud of my 4 year old library activist. This is why I am fighting…She loves reading and that is thanks to her parents who both work at the library.
