Killing Time at the Library

The nine year old, two year old and I spent a little time at the library today, waiting for the four year old to be done with preschool.  The boys found a perfect "sit-on rock" as I used to call them when I was little.

 One of our favorite things to do there is to play chess.

He's getting better, but it was kind of a massacre today.  Too many distractions kept him from paying close attention and he ended up losing most of his good pieces.  He did make a pretty good attempt at a come-back, and even managed to capture my queen.  He's improving :)

The library now has two chess boards - one right next to the other, so the two year old practiced his skills too.  His skills include adding extra pieces to our board when we're not looking.  At one point I looked up and had four bishops.  We finished the game and picked up all the pieces and there was one black pawn missing.  We searched forever before learning that the piece had been missing for three days :/

 These fun chairs are in the young adult room.  They have video games in there which I think should be outlawed in a library.  How on earth are the kids supposed to learn to love to READ if they go to the library and play video games.  We have the same issue in the children's section, where the kids can play computer games.  Grrrr.  Don't get me started.
