Our library has been a friend since we moved to our community more than twenty years ago. At that time the library was a mobile van that came to our neighborhood once or twice a week. If there was something we wanted to read that they didn't have on the van (which was frequently, as the van was small) all we had to do was request a book by title or author and it would be on the van or mailed to us within a few days. Eventually the library moved into a spare room at the local elementary school, and later to several spare spaces at a local business. Finally, it was with a great deal of pride and appreciation that we finally got our own library building. Just around the block from us, it's been a nice place to end up after a walk. Helpful librarians and great service are their trademark! They ordered and delivered countless books for learning and unit studies during our home education years!


  1. I wish our library was better. It's small, not really up to date and it has weird hours. Hope you enjoy yours more than I.


    ps - I love that picture!

  2. Oh, I remember mobile libraries! We used to have a Book Mobile that came to our neighborhood. I loved those days!
