I am a hopelessly addicted bibliophile. I always have been. Always. My mother tells me my first word was “book”. I can easily believe this. Very few things are as exciting and simultaneously relaxing to me as reading a good book.

Therefore it is unsurprising how at home I feel in libraries. And bookstores. A few years ago, my then- young adolescent son began to refer to the library staff in our small town as my ‘homies’. Not sure if I spelled that right. It’s not actually a part of my spoken or written vocabulary in real life. Good-natured teasing…

One characteristic of librarians and their colleagues that I find particularly endearing is how universally helpful and accommodating they are.

Thank you to all the lovely people who populate our public libraries, making the general public feel welcome and supported in the wonderful world of books!
