On most Wednesdays, my kids and I head down to the Delaware Branch of the Albany Public Library and take in a little story time. "Miss Rebecca", our neighborhood librarian, delights the little ones with fun stories and fingerplays and doesn't cringe when the kids voices carry above the standard library whisper. She creates an atmosphere that is welcoming for both the kids and adults (who arguably enjoy singing 'If You're Happy and You Know It" as much, if not more, than the kids).
Undoubtedly, you have a library you love to take your kids to as well, so here is your chance to have it, as well as all the others ones, recognized. A group of Upper Hudson Valley System librarians have decided to nominate ALL the libraries in the Capital District in the 'Best Children's Library" category for the "Times Unions Best of 2009". Take a moment to vote in this fun campaign as a way of saying thank you to all of your local libraries and librarians who spread their book-loving magic to all the little children in the Capital District.
Here's what you can do:
1. Click on the link.
3. Begin to Vote (you can also take this opportunity to vote for all the other great places in the area that merit distinction).
4. When you get to the 'Best Children's Library' Category type "The One You Take Your Kids To"
Ballots will be accepted until . Results will be published in a special “Best of the Capital Region” section of the newspaper.
Rock the Vote!
Thanks to Rebecca T. for the tip!
