L is For Libraries

by Bev

L is for Libraries. I love libraries. I've loved libraries since my mom first took me to our local Carnegie library in Wabash, IN. That was back in the day when I had a bright orange cardboard card that had a metal plate on it that was used in some mysterious way by the librarian in a machine that went "ca-chunk" and indicated that the desired books were mine for two weeks. I loved knowing there was a huge building filled to the brim with books and that I could go and borrow them any time I wanted! Then when I moved here to Bloomington I lucked into one of the best public libraries ever. Not only is it rated in the top ten nationally for service and collections...but I knew we had a winner when one summer their theme was science fiction and they displayed a giant model of the Enterprise from Star Trek. I love the number of activities there are for the whole family from the summer reading program for kids to the winter reading program for adults. Well done, Monroe County Public Library!
