At least once a week my mom would take me and my older siblings to the library to get books; especially during the summer for the reading challenges. When my sister started driving she introduced us to the Main Library branch located downtown. The second floor was my favorite as it had lots of creativity books.

The most frequented branch, especially now, is Otranto Regional. We try to go at least once a week and we go so much the librarians greet us by name. There was a new addition where we can now check out ebooks either through hoopla or OverDrive (favorite).

I still get books and am occasionally greeted by past teachers. Looking forward to their second -Con event this summer.

I have been to many different styles of libraries. The new modern and brightly colored ones are okay, but I love old libraries the best. The ones with the old wooden tables and chairs whose surfaces are worn by the use of generations of readers. I love the way they smell and the feeling that washes over me as I walk through the door. In the older libraries there is no need for a sign to remind you to speak quietly, for the spirit of the place brings a feeling of hushed reverence. You are whisked away to a place of peace and refuge, a place where the cares of life are put on hold, a place where you can find a portal to anywhere and anywhen your heart desires.
