my library

walking distance from home

my toddler is running

screeching

down the children’s folktales aisle

but no one shushes him

I skip over to the reserved book section

filled with delight

5 free presents

with my name inside

forgot  my card-

no problem,

they know me here.

  1. Isn’t it fun to find those free gifts when we visit? Love that libraries today embrace the noises, although I still find it difficult to accept the food in one of my favorite spaces. Your visit was captured by your shrieking toddler and your delight!

  2. I love that there is no shushing and the feeling of belonging and familiarity that emits from these lines. I was just talking to my husband about the looks my daughter got yesterday at our library. 😦
