Every town we have been in for more than one night has been fun for the kids and I. We immediately get to exploring the town finding out where important things are. We find the post office, grocery store, bank, cheap gas and most importantly the library. Today we found the Portage Library. Since we are going to be in Portage for (hopefully) a few months or longer, I decided we needed a library card. I had hoped that because I had ID and a signed lot recepit for our camping site that we would be okay. Not quite. We had to pay for a temporary card due to not actually living in the town. Once we turn the temporary card back in they will give us back our money. It is a small price to pay for the freedom to check out books with the kids. It is a wonderful way to save my sanity. Not to mention lots of books for me. We left today with a bagful of books already eager to go back next week.
