Being an avid reader at a young age, I liked going to the library and getting books that most thought were beyond my reading level. This made me feel self confident and led to my becoming a good student. I enjoyed reading biographies of famous people. This led to my interest in history, which I still have today. Before I went to high school, I spent most of my Sundays at the library because everything else in town was closed. I was never bored on Sunday afternoons like all my friends.
That's my memory of the library...what's yours?
