This morning I’m heading over to the library. It’s time to get my card renewed.

I don’t know why I’m doing this. I don’t check out too many books anymore.

Our library has changed. It used to be one of the biggest and best in the area. It was a delight to go there. Today it is just a fraction—a small fraction of the size it used to be.It’s called downsizing. I don’t like it. Let them downsize something else. Leave my library alone.

I got my first library card when I was in elementary school. I have been checking out books ever since. Except I have cut back the last few years. The library is not as much fun as it used to be.

I’ll head on over there in a few minutes. It just seems like the right thing to do. Everybody should have a library card.

Reading is a basic tool in the leading of a good life.”

It is a sad thing to see libraries being downsized. I was in our small town library recently and there was hardly anyone there. Do you think people are just buying more books to own or just not reading?

I just found your blog and what a lovely blog it is! My husband is a librarian and we agree with you about libraries today. They shouuld be the second largest building in town.
