Whether you usually read off of your own book pile or from the library shelves NOW, chances are you started off with trips to the library. (There’s no way my parents could otherwise have kept up with my book habit when I was 10.) So … What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have you any funny/odd memories of the library?My earliest memory of a library is when I was in elementary school. During the summer when we didn't have school, my mom would come home from work over her lunch break and drop us at the library. We'd sit quietly and read all afternoon until she came to pick us up after work was over! We used to take cheese and crackers (a big no-no now, but we lived in a smaller town and we were always very careful - the librarians never minded!) and enjoy them as our afternoon snack while we were reading. I loved those days - now I wish I had time to spend an entire afternoon reading in a library! I think these experiences contributed to why I love reading so much now.
