I love the public library system. I don’t get to my local library as much as I’d like to, but I take advantage of their services quite a lot: Audible books, Kindle loans, book holds. I’m even going to try some of the library book clubs this month.
Today I went in with my three month old daughter to pick up some books I had on hold for a book club, and I felt so happy. It was mid afternoon, Sunday, and the library was completely full, mostly with people of color. My first thought was “Take a look at this, Trump!”
Anyway, I hope that one day my daughter will love books and libraries as much as I do, and we can spend several hours at a time browsing the children’s shelves, picking out books and participating in story-times. Books have been one of the greatest joys of my life, and I’m excited to share this with my daughter.
