This week’s Booking Through Thursday’s question is:
***Whether you usually read off of your own book pile or from the library shelves NOW, chances are you started off with trips to the library. (There’s no way my parents could have kept up with my book habit when I was 10). So…What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have any funny/odd memories of the library?
This is a good question-brings back a good memory. Gosh, I was young-probably 6, maybe even younger. My mom and I would walk to the neighborhood library-it was about 10 blocks away. It was upstairs in an older building at the time and boy was it hot in there in the summer. I remember running up the stairs and heading for the books. Then it was always exciting to take them up to the librarian and she’d put the little cards in the back and we’d put them in our bags and head home. We usually made the trip once a week and I remember loving the library even back then.
What about you all, what are your first memories of going to the library-any good stories out there?
