I recall visiting the public library quite a bit with my dad, and sometimes also with my mom. My dad was an English teacher, the school debate coach, and he also directed the senior play. He loved libraries, did a lot of research in them, and I loved to tag along.
This is National Library Week (April 13th – 19th) a time when we recognize the huge contribution libraries have made to the American culture.
