When I was a child back in the 60’s, our library was in a very small house 4 blocks from my grandmother’s home. I loved going there in the summer and checking out as many books as I could then taking them to Granny’s house. I would spend lazy afternoons in her porch swing, reading about many different places and people. During the school year, I did the same thing only I used our large school library. I read nearly all of the books in the elementary library by the end of the 6th grade. Our Librarian, Miss Barker allowed my into the high school’s library but she always check to make sure it was appropriate reading for me. During my high school years, I was a volunteer in the school library for 2 years.
