There is just something so grownup about getting your first library card. Allie signed her name all on her own, picked out an armful of books and a couple DVD's, and even used the self scanner to check her materials out of the library. She was beyond excited.
Allie was so proud. Getting her own card was her literacy right of passage. It's a little piece of independence. Her first piece of identification that she insists on keeping in her "wallet."
