Response to me, too!
I loved going to that library all summer long. I would walk to it, we lived about 5 blocks away. My mom would make me call her when I got there, b/c I had to cross a big street. I mean big like a 6 lane hwy. where all the strip malls and fast food places are. My mom worked and she didn't want me walking up there, but you know how kids are. Sometimes she would leave money for a cab, or ask one of our neighbors who didn't work to take me. I grew up in neighborhood about 25 miles outside of Dallas. I discovered Little house on the prairie, Little Women, and the Secret Garden that summer...among many others (but those are a few of my fav's.). That was one of my best summers ever....I still love books, but now I'm always at Barns and Noble or Borders. Maybe it's time to start visiting my public library again. I'll start with "Sweetgum".
