Fond Memories

By Laurie O. 

My earliest memories are growing up in Clifton Park, NY and walking to the (old) Shenendehowa Free Library down the street from my house. My great aunt was the library assistant and she had such love for BOOKS! She inspired me to go there often to participate in community activities and bring books home to read.

She worked in that library for years and actually put herself through college as an adult to become the Librarian of that Old library and the New one that was built in town by the Mall, now called Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library. Fond experiences of my youth led me as an adult to bring my three young sons to our local library for Story Time. I can only hope that my sons continue this tradition when they have families of their own; and that Story Time and borrowing books to bring home to read still exist!
