took me to the Library. We were living in a very big city at the
time. We climbed the stairs and entered into a place
that was magic to me. I remember there was a low shelf next
to the window with lots of children's books. I must have been
about 4 years old, because I was not yet in school. I sat by
the window and looked through many books. When we left,
I am sure we took a few books home with us. We went
back to that library many times, as I still remember checking
out books from that library for elementary school.
Books have always held a fascination to me. They are your
friends when you are lonely, sick, or when you just want to
travel to a different place or time. The Library is also a great
resource for Quilting books. I have a very healthy collection
of quilting books in my own library, but sometimes, I just
enjoy looking at other books for ideas. I check out quilting books
and keep them for the maximum time allowed!
What fun to browse through these books and enjoy the amazing
resource the Library affords.
Now that Summer is gone, the time draws near to grab a quilt,
a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate, snuggle into a big old chair and
get lost in a book.
Have you checked what your local Library has available?? You
might be pleasantly surprised.
