Zion and Zephaniah at the Library
I have written in the past about the library. It is actually in a building that was formerly a hospital. It was expanded by a man named Sandy Hunter (thus the name of the building)
The younger 3 kids were able to attend a library program over the summer. They learned about how oil was discovered on Belizean soil. They designed a shop with cardboard and other recycled materials.

We don't go to the library as often as we would in the states. Only the kids have library cards and they are currently allowed only to check out one book per card. The other issue is that I am still not skilled at driving the three-wheeler. (I stink at it and my carpal tunnel kicks in, leaving my right hand numb; needless to say, I don't really drive it at all)

We were blessed to be still invited to the Christmas program for the library.
The kids watched a movie then sat on the lawn for a lunch of rice and beans.

They were given cookies, candy canes, grapes, and an apple to take home with them. I consider ourselves blessed to be a part of the community.

How else do we get books you wonder? We use our cards from Bucks County library to access them online. Abigail uses Hoopla a lot (it has a wide selection of graphic novels). Selah and I use Overdrive which has books and audio books. There is also RB digital which offers magazines.
I have to say I am very thankful to be alive during the digital age. There are occasionally books that aren't available in both the library and electronic form. I actually haven't figured out why this happens especially with a newer book. I totally understand preferring the "real, physical" copy. For us, it is about access. We are thankful that we can have access to books in whatever way is best for us.
Hope you enjoyed our fun and interesting library excursions.
