I received this nice link from my local library about National Library Week 2017 in my email today. Libraries are wonderful. It's a great week to celebrate them.
I visited the Library of Congress in DC one year (amazing), and I walked past the New York Library, shown below. I didn't have enough time to look inside. For 3 years I worked in the mail room at my college library, and I have fond memories of the people and years. Every library in my life comes with a story--both on the shelves and in the time that I spent within its walls.
What about you? Who was your elementary school librarian? Did he or she read stories to your class? How many libraries have you visited?
