The Library

This Throwback Thursday, let’s talk about the library.  When I was little, I used to love to go to the library.  I loved books (still do) and the library was always an adventure – activities, story time and all those lovely books just waiting for me.

Today’s library is a very different place from the hushed haven I remember.  Today, my local library has a coffee bar and serves as a meeting place buzzing with activities.  It’s a multimedia hub and still fabulous – but I miss the hush and smell of books and carpet that was such a part of my childhood visits to the library.

Last week, this photo from my childhood was posted on Facebook – it’s during story hour at the library and I’m the 4th child from the left.  I’m guessing I was around 3 years old.


Do you have any favorite memories of the library?  Let me know in the comments!
