Do you remember your first Library card? I do. My Mother took me to the ever so small Library we had in town, (and I mean tiny...one small room). The nice Library Lady gave me a manilla colored paper card with my name "offically" typed. All I had to do was sign it, and keep it in a safe place. That card was placed in a special box under my bed - a sacred place along with pennies and shiny gems from gumball machines.
I still have a Library card (not my original one, unfortunately), but an active one. There are two Libraries that I like: the one in my town, and the County one. One is a beautiful old building that has turrets and sort of resembles a castle. It even has a spiral staircase. The other one is comtemporary in style and full of great materials for research. I love the scent of an old book, and even a new one. Do you still have a Library card?
