Take It From Teigen

Model, author,“Bring the Funny” judge, and social media master Chrissy Teigen posted on Twitter that she visited the library with her 3 year old for story time...

I just went to the public library for the first time in *23* years. I could not believe my eyes. Did group storytelling with Luna, ran around hiding in nooks and crannies, got inspired by 1 million cookbooks and spotted many a difference in a highlights magazine. was awesome. https://t.co/4wR0tdD5UL— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 7, 2019

“seriously. go to the library,” she wrote in another tweet. “It’s a delight.”

Teigen also invited equinox and soulcycle members to instead "meet her at the library. bring weights" or to "ride your bike to the library".

You don't even need weights, just meet by the encyclopedias

Libraries are good for circulation.
