Mona,

I agree. You never know what you will discover by accident or serendipity. Also, the digital library I saw during a news story was so sterile. Books are beautiful objects in and of themselves.

Our library here is the Grace Molonson Pickens library. Mrs. Pickens was the mother of T. Boone Pickens, who was born here in Holdenville, Oklahoma. I understand there was a grant or gift left to the city for this library's renovation. The site is quite small -- next to the high school and it is housed in an actual former residence of T. Boone Pickens with a small addition for a meeting room. It sure does need another grant so that more books can be bought. Every time I look for a book it's not something that the library owns.

Sheryl, I do agree that it sounds like they need a grant, but it also sounds like a cool library. Is it broken up into rooms just like a house would be?

I LOVE my library. It's an oldie too! Like early 1900s I think. It's surrounded by trees, and a Lincoln memorial, with fountains.

I haven't spent much time there in the last few years, but was thinking about my huge list of books I want to read, and knowing it would be so much better to borrow them than to keep buying books I may only read once.

Your library sounds beautiful.
And, I also started checking out more books than buying books!
