I remember the day I found the library - I knew about libraries, of course, as we went to the library regularly in grade school. As crazy as this may sound - the library turned out to be one of the greatest gifts of my life! I was able to learn about anything and everything - cooking, cleaning, trimming trees, pruning rose bushes, fertilizing, crafting, novels, taking care of pets, bird watching, fixing things, and all of this for FREE! The library became my place; I went every Friday I went row by row. It was in the library that I learned for the very first time in my life that I could just sit and be quiet. Those were some of the best days of my life.
