Deliverance—and that she was really enjoying herself here. But what struck me was that she thought getting a library card was one of the most important things to do after relocating and that she found time to do it so soon after her arrival. Anyone who has made a major relocation knows how a thousand errands clamor for your attention, yet she took the time to get her library card.
One gentleman came in to deal with some fines on his card, telling us, “I need my library card. I value my library card!”
But what made me smile the most was the teen who came in and saw our table with the lemonade and cookies last Wednesday. When she asked what it was for, I told her that it was National Library Week and the treats were to show our patrons that we appreciate their business. She gave me a big grin and said, “You’ve got EVERYTHING going on in this library!”
Visit your library. See some of the “everything” we have going on!
