A few months ago when we were at the library, Desert Boy wanted to get a library card. The librarian said he had to be five. This brought on a lot of tears, but I promised him that he would go to the library and get his card as soon as we could.
So the day after his birthday, we went to town and went to the library. We filled out the form to get the library card.
He has a special pouch for the library card.
He chose some books (about trains) and I found a Hank the Cowdog audiobook (thanks for the recommendation, John, they have been a hit!)
The library card worked, so Desert Boy is in business. Hopefully he does better than his mama with getting his books back on time!
