Joy

I did a lot of stuff today – see:

While I was standing in line at the library waiting to check out my book, I happened to be privy to observing a tiny little girl of about 4yrs, entering the library with her family. She seemed to be looking right at me with the biggest smile of recognition – and I smiled back as that kind of smile you just can’t resist returning. It wasn’t me she recognised though. She was seeing the Children’s library section which was behind me and down the stairs. You could tell she’d been in that little bit of heaven before.

I thought about what magic it must seem like to her – a zillion trillion bright, colourful intereresting books – all there for her to have a look at, to hold, to TAKE HOME for awhile, to sit at the little tables designed just for kids her size to look through and decide what treasures to take home with her and what would stay behind, perhaps for another day.

Even as a grown up, I find the library to be such a wonderful place and it’s still magic to me that with a wave of my library card I can take home a few books or other media to enjoy … for a little while.
