Amazing "Library" Books

Hello, and welcome to my library! I love books, and Books about Libraries make me feel right at home! As an avid reader, my personal library is more than 2,000-3,000 strong, and I’m always adding to it. Growing up, I called the Dial-A-Story program at my local library at least two or three times a week, even though they only changed the story once a week. And YES, I Missed Bedtime, because I was camped out in a good book (Still Do!) So, while I’m not exactly a Librarian, I probably qualify as a Libraryan What better place to start … Read More
