A Reason for Thanksgiving: “The Public Library."
Recently I was at my local farmer's market and one of the women from one of the farms complimented me on my hand-knit scarf. I told her I got the pattern from a book I check out from the library. She told me that she did not think she had that option as her rural library was not that good. I am grateful that our local library has an excellent collection of craft books to borrow. Not everyone has access to a quality library.
Thank you for reminding us how grateful we should be be for our public libraries. I've depended on public libraries ever since I first learned to read and I don't know how I would get along with out them even now. Libraries are a lifelong gift.
Kathleen, thanks for the link to one of my postcard posts. I highly recommend the library postcard site of Judy Aulik. "Civic Pride in a Lost America: Library Postcards" https://www.aulik.info/ .
Living in a small town (less than 1000 people) I was astonished to hear a city council member ask the question "Does anyone even use the library?". Clearly they did not.
It turns out to be one of the major hubs of our little town.
Thank you for reminding me to go to my local public library !!
