It's National Library Week! I just found out today and now I am giddy with excitement. I have and always will, love the library. I have a profound sense of joy every time I walk into one. I could be having the worst day and I go into the library and I am instantly better. When I was younger, I would spend my summers lying in the aisles of the library. My mom always knew exactly where to find me. I would read anything I could get my hands on and remember back when I was obsessed with ghost stories and the boxcar children, and those book written by children themselves. I loved everything and every library I've ever encountered.
Chronicle books is asking people to share their own #LibraryLoveLetter for a chance to win $500 worth of books (that is amazing!). I did it, and you should too. They've also posted these really wonderful Love Letters from famous authors who, like me and like all readers, fell in love with libraries.
