I cannot imagine my life without the library.  Mom always tooks us when we were children.  I naturally took my own children.  Now I work at the library.  What a nice place to work. But, really, it's all about the books.  It's about the joy of reading.  It's about the people you meet and the places you go in a book.  There is always one more book to read.  The best part is, IT'S FREE. I found a great site for those of you who love the library as much as I do, ilovemylibrary.org. They have a wonderful page where you can calculate the value of your library experience. Everyone is looking for a bargain these days.  You get the most bang for your bucks at the library.
