My first memory of the library is walking to the local library when I was about ten. I was always a lover of books, so going to the library, especially on my own, was a thrill. Well, that was over sixty years ago and I still love going to the library. At least once a week I’ll visit the library, peruse the latest releases, and sit and read for a while. A library is inviting; it is a place to relax and refresh. As I am a reader, people often want to buy me books. My response is thank you, but I read library books!
