I have a personal fondness for libraries, having grown up spending hours in the children’s section of the local Carnegie Library in my area. Our library was two stories, the upper floor for adults and the lower (or basement) the “home away from home” for children. Dimly-lit, cramped, overstocked and with a musty air, it was a magical place that housed adventure and fantasy within its book leaves and built-in bookcases. Libraries inspire. And educate.
