Do you know what my favorite thing about the library is? Everything! Ok, maybe I am biased because I work here but I do wonder about people who haven't discovered the riches within. Popular magazines? Check. The latest Michael Koryta? Check. The Wall Street Journal? Check. Nora Roberts, book discussions, graphic novels, Paolo Bacigalupi, and downloadable audio and ebooks? Check and check.
Why the celebration of the library?
It's National Library Week!
The Monroe County Public Library is celebrating by asking our community to share their stories about books or libraries on our website. Read the stories or share yours - and spread the love for reading.
Need some inspiration to think about your library discovery? Linda Holmes, NPR's entertainment and pop culture blogger recently wrote an lovely ode to her local library in her recent posting, The Library Card As A Pop-Culture Fiend's Ticket To Geek Paradise.
