Getting library card opens new worlds, old feelings

Those are good memories. The baseball and Boys Club “firsts” won’t be coming my way again. They only happen once.

The wondrous thing about the ones about the library card and books, though, is that they can be experienced again – for me, at least.

A library is like a giant train station with thousands of routes you can take to different places, just by lifting a book off a shelf and checking it out. It’s a great place.”

This piece was written by a patron who, like many of us, move from city to city. Being a person who does not, I was moved by the author’s thrill to be in possession of a new library card.
