Library people

26 Mar

Monday was officially my first day of Spring Break and I spent part of the day at one of my favorite places : the public library.  Truly a place for everyone, here is who I saw:

A mom pushing a toddler in a stroller and holding the hand of her older child, crossing the street, on their way to story time.

A dad with two daughters, dressed identically, though one was clearly older. Both girls pushed identical babies in identical strollers.

A woman at the circulation desk, getting help placing holds.

A man at the circulation desk, taking care of his fines.

A woman exiting a study room, leaving a man with headphones inside.

People of all ages, colors, socio-economic statuses using the computers.

Toddlers of all colors – and energy levels – in the children’s area.

The Street Roots vendor out front, chatting to a former Streets Root vendor.

And Harry, patiently waiting for his mom and sister.

    A day at the library is always a good day in my book. It’s also a great way to start a vacation!

    Love the photos you created with words—and the one of Harry, too. I am especially pleased with my library when I read: “A man at the circulation desk, taking care of his fines.” It has done away with fines!

      They’ve done away with juvenile & teen fines, but still charge adult fines. I suspect it is only a matter of time until the adult fines go.

    So many interesting people. Besides being an ideal place to get books it is also a good place to people watch.

    I love the library. Alas, my children have caused us to accrue quite a lot of fines! We have lost, found, and lost again a book about dinosaurs from last summer! As a result, I don’t bother to go during the year (we can use the school library anyway!) but as soon as summer arrives we’ll pay our fine and start checking out public library books again. I do, however, always use my phone to check out & read e-books for myself!

    This picture of a library and the people welcomed therein heartens me.
