We took a trip to the library. It’s a gorgeous summer Saturday, not too hot, sunshiny and breezy! As you can see, I am an ‘eclectic’ book lover. I read a variety of things! It will be interesting to see how these authors, (some of them new to me), are.
Saturdays are bittersweet as we have to drive further now to visit a library that is open in the summer. Out of the thirty or so libraries in our system, some nearby, others quite a distance, only two are now open on Saturdays during the summer. That is so sad! For those who work all week, a weekend trip to the library is now out of the question.
I love libraries. I hope they never close. With the new electronic downloading of books, I wonder what will happen? I have many happy memories of story-hour-on-the-lawn and ice cream afterward in our summer reading children’s programs.
Hope you visit a library soon, and find a pile of books to take home and savor also!
