à la bibliothèque

We stopped by the little library in the village on our way home today and got each of the kids a library card of their own (although somehow my ability to spell in French means that there is now a “u” and an “r” at the end of Matea…..)  It’s a quaint little library, with two older ladies working the front desk. (they seemed about as comfortable with their computers as I do with the method by which I should eventually get my long-term-visa)

It’s a bit harder for the older two to have to pick out “little kid” books, but for now that’s their level of French comprehension.  Well, also some Tin-Tin and Asterix were in the mix – but I’m afraid the kids really won’t fit in well if they don’t have some rudimentary understanding of classics like those.
