Last Library Visit

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you vis­it­ed a library?”

Library books.

About a month ago, when I renewed my Gwin­nett Coun­ty library card so I could check out dig­i­tal items from that library. Dekalb County’s library doesn’t have e-books yet, and they make up 99% of my book read­ing habits these days.

I adore libraries. I have good mem­o­ries of them that go back to being 5 years old or so and vis­it­ing a Cobb Coun­ty library branch that had a play­ground as well as a good children’s sec­tion. Mom was will­ing to take us there pret­ty fre­quent­ly over the next three years, since the books kept me busy and the play­ground kept my sis­ter, and even­tu­al­ly my broth­er, busy.

One of the first things I do when mov­ing to a new place is find the clos­est library and get a card. Any time I see a new library, I want to stop, even if I can’t get a card. I’m just curi­ous as to what THIS one will hold, what it’s like inside. I adore the peace and qui­et, the rev­er­ence for learn­ing in libraries. They’re love­ly retreats, but most could use more com­fy chairs.
