Since I don’t want to set a precedent of holding secrets from Spaceman, I told him of this new (actually new/old) love, the library.
My mom was always an avid reader and when I was young would often suggest I get lost in a good book to which I, like any self-respecting teenager, would respond, “No!” — or grunt something along those lines. However, she really did know best and the library is a great place to get lost.
Libraries are much more than shelves of books. They offer lectures, movie nights (at least ours does), book fairs and so much more — all available for free (if you return the book on time).
Peterborough, New Hampshire. That’s right, the Peterborough Town Library was established in 1833 beating the much touted Boston Library by about 15 years (19 if you count when the Boston Library actually opened).
I am thinking of starting a monthly, or perhaps quarterly, book club/review on the blog – any suggestions for the inaugural author?
