Reading Road Trip with BECPL

This is somewhat “old news” but I just learned about it, so it’s new to me, and I don’t think we ever reported it on this blog.

In 2010, the Jafarjian family of Williamsville decided to visit all 37 libraries in the Buffalo & Erie County Library System, and they blogged about it. Operation Reading Road Trip documents the process, including photos of each library and a description of what they did. It includes comments on the library’s collection, interior decor, and other stops near the building.

It’s great to see a family with 2 young children making libraries and reading a part of their lives, and it’s fascinating to see all their thoughts on the various locations. The road trip was completed in June 2011, but the blog is still up for anyone who wants to read all about their adventure.

The family was also profiled by WBFO, the local NPR station, and honored at a media event held by the Central library.

This is a great idea…any chance we can inspire someone to try this for the Nioga Library System or Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System?
