I miss the library in my home town. I know that library like the back of my hand. I had my favorite quiet corners where I'd read or study. I never left with just one book (I still am a book worm). When I was old enough my mother allowed me to walk to the library by myself. When I got my license the first place I drove to was the library. No joy riding for me. I wanted to read.
The library is still there. I need to visit sometime and see how much its changed.
