She just started reading a little, so I got her a special bag for her books at the Type A Mom Conference from CrankyPants' booth.

If any Nashvillians remember the old hole of a library, the new one is so much better! It is an absolute dream and reminds me of my favorite library, the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh, PA. It is everything a trip to get your first library card should be. Big marble staircases, soaring ceilings, glass atria... elevator buttons (hey, she's three - she doesn't appreciate the architecture yet!).
The first library card
Knowing is half the battle (just like G.I. Joe said). I believe the Kid is giving a homeless guy the side eye...
Only slightly creepy puppets
We ended our trip with an early lunch at Provence Breads. They have a small bistro attached to the library and I had a ham and cheese panini with tomato basil soup whilst the Kid ate half a chocolate croissant, fruit and milk.
The only bummer about the trip was that now everything is checked out with a self-scanner, so there is less human interaction with the librarians now. I sort of miss the book banter that I remember as a child. However, it was a successful trip to the library and if you are ever in the area, check the Nashville Public Library out!
