Treasure troves of magic

©Ted Strutz

It’s a place of magic. There are so many different worlds to travel to. So many personalities to impersonate. Here, you could be anything, anyone, at anytime, anywhere.

Libraries, she was taught, “are more than just a storage place for books, they are treasure troves filled with creativity and knowledge. And that knowledge can be empowering(R.L Hemlock).

Libraries open windows to the world, inspire us to explore and achieve more, to contribute to improving the world, and thus change it for the better.

They are parts of life’s necessities, reminding us simultaneously of the excitement of being a kid.

  2. You’ll have an audience that agrees I’m sure on this flash fiction spot! Love your library. My daughter set up her books as a library in her bedroom and issued the family with cards made on the computer – I still have mine 20 years later.

  13. All very true, which it makes it even more angering when councils and governments threaten them with closure.
