The library may be one of the oldest mom summer hacks that are out there. That’s because your Mama knew a free book borrowed for two weeks would keep you occupied for many, many hours. Make sure your kids get to know the smell of a paper book and the joy of searching the shelves while also taking advantage of the many perks your library card entitles you to:
