As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to read it. While I didn’t lose my library books, I too was a kid who found refuge in “bringing home stacks of books.” But as any good librarian knows, libraries are about people, not books. With a very few exceptions, books can always be replaced, fines forgiven, and still another hold request placed. Sad to say, but for many kids, warmth and kindness are the exception.
Here’s to cheery librarians!
