An Ode to Public Libraries in the Summer
As an adult, I still enjoy the world of novels, but I love even more to check out books on living sustainably, farming, and obscure crafts. There is a whole world of knowledge to discover at the library.
We stopped in at our library today. I browsed through the non-fiction, placed a hold on a new book, and read stories to my son in the children's section. We chatted with the librarians and Kesten dragged one of them around the library, showing off his new walking skills and crawling under shelves. Children were gathered upstairs, talking about the books they read this week for Summer Reading Club, and people from town were using the internet downstairs. Someone was in the corner reading a paper. What a great place. There is community in the library. Have you stopped by your local library yet this Summer?
