Library Books

Yesterday I went to the library and I came home with a bag full of books. Books about nature, knitting, photography and a couple of novels too.

My mother loved to read and I am sure that she passed down her love of books to me. I remember that one of my favorite books when I was young was a bird identification book for children. I also enjoyed mystery books, Little House on the Prairie books, and books that taught me how to do fun arts and crafts projects.

Libraries are a treasure chest filled with knowledge. I have learned so much over time with the help of my library. When I was looking for a job, I read some books from the library to learn how to write a perfect resume. When I got my first home computer, I avoided a lot of confusion by reading a few books about computers. When I moved to a new place, I went to the library to learn about the local history and attractions.

Libraries have changed over time. I like that I can reserve books, movies, music or magazines through my computer and receive an email to tell me when my materials are ready. I like that libraries are no longer quiet zones and that I can talk in a normal voice to the person next to me.

Some things have not changed. Librarians are still friendly and helpful people. And it is still fun to visit my public library.
