National Library Week
National Library Week. You gotta love the library. I know I do. I celebrate the library all year long, not just one week out of the year. My hometown library is fabulous. First off, our library is always busting out busy, yet there is always a place to park and I so appreciate how I can pull up and pop in my checkouts because the return box is conveniently placed near the building. Secondly, we have a larger-than-life statue of Abraham Lincoln in the foyer. How cool is that? Honest Abe, who we all know was a definite Book Booster is right there greeting each and every patron who enters the door. Thirdly, the foyer always has a group of kids hanging out. Being a teacher I certainly enjoy seeing my students, past and present (and maybe some future ones) relaxing in a safe place that welcomes them. Our library has a wonderful kids program ranging from preschool to high school. Kids are a valued aspect of our local library. But the reason above all reasons I love my local library is they know me on a first name basis. This cartoon is me going to the library. No kidding.
I have librarians who email me new book read suggestions, and will actually buy my requests instead of just inter-library loan order them. Love my library! Oh, yes indeed I do. Check out this link if you love your library.
For fun here is a tribute to libraries:
Oh, by the way…if you haven’t become a Book Booster yet, there is still room on the list.
Well, gotta run. My library closes in fifteen minutes and I have a book on hold.
