Road Trip!

So, it’s nearing the end of the school year and families are planning their vacations. This is a fun time: deciding where to go, what to do, what to see……you plan and plan – and then finally you’re done. The dates are set and the reservations made. Woohoo! Now you’re just waiting for that beautiful day to arrive.


…..And then it hits you. You have 3 kids and it will take 4 hours to get there. The first 30 minutes will be everybody getting settled and situated. Wonderful. But, oh my goodness, that leaves 3.5 more hours to go! Visions of kids saying “He’s on my side of the car!”, “Stop it!”, “She’s looking at me!”, “Give it back!”, “Are we there yet?” dance through your head. Just thinking of the upcoming, never-ending car trip is giving you a headache. Panic starts setting in. How will you keep them busy? You can only do the alphabet game so long before losing your mind. And really, do you want to listen to “99 Bottles” 99 times?!! In order to survive this trip you need a game plan……

The Houston County Libraries are here to help. All libraries have great alternatives to kids shouting and pushing. We carry kids DVD’s, CD’s, and of course, books. If they love reading, we have a wide selection of material they can choose from. We even have books on CD’s! Or if they like puzzles, the I Spy series is great for those who love visual challenges. So before you leave, stop by and checkout our selection. Your trip will be quieter for it.
