Holding a book is a link to the past and a portal to the future. Do you remember who shared the gift reading with you? Was it a parent, teacher or a librarian? Honor those who introduced you to the library by sharing your story.
"For the forty-four years I lived in Arlington the Robbins was a vital destination - from the circulation desk, to the splendid reading room, to the reference desk, to the stacks, to the table overlooking the beehive-balcony, to the top-floor conference room, the scene of poetry workshops, to the community room and the children’s room. And always there were helpful librarians and staff."
