A little background about me, books, and libraries. I had my own library card before I was in second grade. When I was in second grade I was old enough walk alone to the Corbin Library. I had to cross the streets and roads (Major HWY US 25 ran through town) to get to the library. Once there I could check out any book I wanted. And if it wasn't finished by bedtime, I would read it under the covers with a flashlight. I hated not having a book available to replace the one I was reading. I still am that way, panic attack if no books are waiting to be read. Really, panic attacks.
Today was my stock up on books day. Usually I get 99% mysteries. But today I have biographies, non fictions, novels, and a couple of mysteries. A smorgasbord of books.
My library is fairly new and homey. Lots of chairs, art exhibits, huge selection of books, and it is open 7 days a weeks, and many nights. I love my library.
Walking up to the front door
These two pictures show the main floor. On the left are DVDs, 90% of them are free. Look up and on the floor are fiction stacks, study tables, a museum, and magazine room.
The entrance to the Children's Library. Children love to use their little entrances. And the statue of the woman reading to children is wonderful Every time I first see it, I think it is real. Behind the statue is a wall of new books.
As you come out the door, this is a partial view of the free parking lot. One of the prettiest lots around. Lot of trees to shade your car during the hot part of the day.
Yes, I do love this library. It is big, open, friendly staff, and thousands of books. What more could a book lover want?
