I don’t mind children in the library. Even if they are talking or laughing too loudly, because they are enjoying books. They are having fun, and learning to read. But when you tell your child that he can’t check out a book because then you can’t get all of the movies you want, and he starts to wail, but you’re on your phone so you dismisively tell him to shut up, then we have a problem. The problem isn’t the child. The problem is you! You are more interested in the free movies and on updating your facebook status, that don’t realise what you’ve done. You have just taught a child that a phone is better than a book. That telling people what you are doing is more important than your child. Why bring a child to the library if you’re not going to introduce them to the magic and wonder that is held within the bindings of a book?
