I Love Libraries

I love libraries. Always have. I was the kid who wanted to take out sixty books at once. My mom eventually had to make a rule that I could only take out as many books as I could carry. I learned to stretch out my arms and balance a huge number of books between my fingertips and chin -- enough books that if I'd dropped them, I'd have crushed a small puppy.

I'm still that way. Confronted with a smorgasboard of books, I'll say, "Let's take them all." And so I stagger out of the library with more books than I could possibly read before the due date. I can't help myself.

Anyway, my mom (who is directly responsible for my addiction to libraries) is visiting and discovered this song, and I just had to share it:

We used to take this huge, sturdy canvas bag that can hold an inordinate number of books. It was quite nice.

I like the song.

i love libraries to. when i was little, the city children librarian was my baby sitter- he was a member of my church, and he and his wife would come, and bring books, and then my brother and i would 'yay or nay' them. it was fun.

i was the first one in my school, i think, to discover the limit at the library- they only let you take 50 books.

SavyLeartist: I love the smell of books too. Even dusty, musty ones.

Q: I now have a big canvas bag as my Library Bag. Very useful.

AnnaDee: A babysitter with books is definitely the best sort of babysitter!

Samantha: I'd been wondering how renovations were going. Can't wait to see it! Glad to hear it turned out well.
