  1. Your public Library - grumbles or bouquets!

    High school was not my favorite place. I hated it so much I rarely showed up and never graduated. I'd leave after signing in to home room so I'd be marked present for the day and they wouldn't call my house. Most days, I'd walk to the town library. It was a rather small town with a rather small library, but I was a rather young reader so there were plenty of things I hadn't read. I spent hour after hour, day after day, sitting in that library. The librarians must have known I should have been in school but they never said a word about it. God bless them. People didn't get why I would ditch school only to go read in the library. It made perfect sense to me. Still does. The town I live in now is tiny. There is only one school, K-8, and the school library and town library are one in the same. The library is as tiny as the town. But if you really want a book, a librarian will track it down, call the library that has it, tell them to reserve it for you, and give you a special borrowing pass. Every librarian I've ever spoken with has been pleasant and helpful. They will find the book you want, and a way get it into your hands, if at all possible. So I give bouquets to every library. But especially, I'd like to give bouquets, along with my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude, to every librarian.
