Yes, the library is full of stories in the most literal sense. In books, magazines, newspapers, microfilm, CD's, etc.
But for me the library is full of other stories as well, my life stories.
Stories of my mispent youth. Stories of my childhood and helping kids younger than me read. Stories published in the paper about how I read a crazy amount of books for the summer reading club one year. Stories about having fun at work.
Friendships that have lasted well beyond our careers at the library.
My kids are now weaving some stories of their own compliments of the local libraries. Reagan is a book worm just like her Momma. She must go to bed with no less than 3 books every night. She says she is going to be a librarian when she grows up.
Maybe she'll finish what I started.
