50 stories: Generations of library visits… #hcpl50

summer kid readingThis week’s story comes from Linda Dodds who visits our Gooderham branch.

I started going to a public library as a student in a one room school where our teacher would take a car load of us once a week to get books. This began my love of reading. As parents of three kids we always visited the library in the towns we lived in weekly. The libraries were also a free source of holiday activities for them to take part in. They still visit the library in the cities they live in as we do in Gooderham. Without our Library we would never have had access to all the books we have read and enjoyed.
