I cannot think of a day in my life when the library didn’t exert a potent attraction for me, offering a sense of the specialness of each individual’s curiosity and his or her quest to satisfy it.
Some of my earliest memories are of book readings and story nights at our local library. It’s where I first learned to love reading, and discovered how exciting it is to get lost in the pages of a really good book.
Libraries offer, for free, the wisdom of the ages—and sages—and, simply put, there’s something for everyone inside.
I’ve had a lifelong love affair with libraries, and will forever be grateful, as a fan of literature and a professional writer, for the wide-reaching impact of hardworking, passionate librarians.
When I got my library card, that’s when my life began.
