Walls of knowledge to grow and stories to tell. Walking the aisles and browsing the shelves I am in the most peaceful place.
Unless I have my 5 children with me...then I am completely stressed out!
My kids share my love for books and no matter how many times I give them the "No Touching!" pep talk before we enter, they just cannot contain themselves. Little hands are grabbing at every book they desire and before I know it there is a pile on the floor...and the librarian is giving me a dirty look.
Then I discovered the most wonderful thing. I can go on our library's website and request the books I need online. If they aren't at that branch, they will find them for me and email me when my books are ready. Then I just go and pick them up. I'm in and out and able to check out so much more than if I had tried to find them myself. Simple.
I don't know if every library does this, but go check it out...you could just start enjoying the library again.
