Our new outdoor library

This is in my neighborhood a quite little corner where you can read books and stories or study outdoor. This is a nice quiet corner that the neighborhood people built on a volunteer basis with benches and a roof that gives shade and protects the people who sit and read it. There is also a small broad near where children sometimes play... All the books out there are donated by people and sometimes people add, lend or return books so there are a great variety of topics to read. Do you have a outdoor library in your place?

I like that and this is so nice to encourage people to read more. I just wonder whether the books will get wet if it rains heavily. A few weeks ago I saw a modern book booth nearby my home. At first I thought it was a mini library but later I found that it is a boostore which sells book automatically. I just wonder who will buy a book in that way since you can take it to browse it at first. You can only see its cover and not much information about the books.

That's awesome, I sometimes need some peace and quiet from my dad and from my sister so I go to a library to study. The problem is that the library is not opened for the whole day, just a few hours in morning and at the noon. Well, I guess it's all right. Did you read any book already from that open library ?

@gilggg That is so lovely, I bet people sit and listen to you too (maybe pretending to be reading something else, but, maybe, they listen to you). When my mom reads a story to my nephew, she reads it with intonations: Do you know the story with the five balloons (yellow, green, blue, purple, and red) ? When my mom reads is, she changes her voice to the characters. My nephew likes it very much :-) There is also the story about the rabbit that doesn't likes to be seen by others, so the lion and the giraff decide to hide and wait for him to come out, then they get to know him, his name is ''mitz petel'' (hebrew for raspberry juice). My mom changes her voice to the lion's voice, the giraff's voice and all :-) this is so funny and dramatic. Can you please tell about some specific stories that you read to your kids ?
