The Reading Rainbow Mom blog recently posted the top “10 Magical Children’s Libraries” in honor of their Library Theme of the Week, which ranked Brentwood’s as the third most magical on the list.

A whimsical entrance featuring oversized books and a story tree beckon kids to come inside the children's area at the Brentwood Library in Brentwood, TN. Children are greeted by a talking owl, which is operated by a motion sensor and adds to the library's playful atmosphere.
The Brentwood Library stays especially busy during the warm weather months with its popular summer reading program. School may not be in session that time of year, but young minds can still stay stimulated here with programs featuring musicians, magicians, puppeteers, live animals and more. In addition, the Brentwood Library offers four preschool story time sessions and one family session, plus an after school program for kids in Kindergarten through second grade that includes reading, games, crafts and snacks.
Children in the third, fourth and fifth grades can enjoy the Brentwood Bunch Book Club that meets every fourth Friday of the month, as well as a Lego Mania event that takes place the second Friday of each month.
All kids have unlimited access to a variety of books and magazines, and they can enjoy their selections surrounded by the library's beautiful murals, sculpted animals, stained glass windows and other fun features.
Wow Factor: In 2011, more than 1,000 children signed up for the Brentwood Library's summer reading program, and as group, they read 13,960 books.

10 Magical Children’s Libraries In Honor of Our Library Theme of the Week!

Reading Rainbow Mom, Theme of the Week April 15, 2013 Comments: 8

“In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way.”  -Anne Lamott

This week our theme is LIBRARIES and how much we love them! Like books, libraries truly are places where magic and miracles live… even if they sometimes look plain and mundane on the outside. We all know that we aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, but what about libraries? Should we judge a library by its outward façade?

In honor of this week’s theme I’ve collected ten of the most magical-looking children’s libraries I could find. I’m sure there are some beautiful libraries out there that I wasn’t able to include, so if you love your public library be sure to tell us in the comments below!
