My Childhood Memory of the Library (10th in a series)

Growing up, my favorite day was “library day.” My Mother would take my brother and me to the library and we could choose as many books as we wanted. Of course, we differed on what number was “within reason.” I loved to sit on the floor and read a little bit from each book to whittle down my selections. There was a certain library book scent that I remember which still gives me flutters in my tummy. I religiously read all the Bobbsey Twins, Cherry Ames, and of course Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I also really enjoyed reading about girl pioneers growing up in the Wild West. My favorite book was always The Wizard of Oz.

That’s my childhood memory of the library…what’s yours?
