Today I found time to stop into the library, which made me really happy because it has been about a week or so since I was able to go to the library for anything other than an outside book/music return.
Originally, I went in thinking that I was missing some disks from the first Season of Lost. I haven’t ever seen the show, and despite people having melt-downs over the (supposed) terrible ending- I’m ready to take the plunge.
It turns out that no disks were actually missing from the box I brought in, but that it said “Disk 5”, “Disk 6” and “Bonus Disk” because it was part 2 of a set of disks. I just have to locate the first part of the first season.
While standing in the customer service line, I was behind a young woman gently rolling a stroller back and forth with a tiny baby girl inside.
The librarian asked her some questions (I wasn’t paying much attention to those questions) and then she asked her birthdate. The woman replied “December 10th, 2014.”
It took three seconds for me to realize that the newborn was getting her first library card.
Not even three months old and she already has a library card!
That really made me smile.
I think I was like 12 when I got my first card.
What better way to start off your life though, than to get involved with your local library?
If I had children, going to the library weekly would be a major part of our lives. There is so much to learn and it is all available in your neighborhood library!
