Love This – My Library

Posted by lori . 12 Comments


As a taxpayer, there are some things I like paying for and some things I don’t.  One thing I like…my local library.  I am fortunate to live in an area that has a robust library system, in a country that has long valued public libraries.  I am a card carrying member of the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library System.

This is my library…

It’s a beautiful place filled with books, helpful librarians, DVD, audiobooks and so much more…


and I love it.

The best of my education has come from the public library… my tuition fee is a bus fare and once in a while, five cents a day for an overdue book.  You don’t need to know very much to start with, if you know the way to the public library.

    Thank you so much for your kind words!!! I am so gun shy now!! So afraid of something else bad that will happen!! I have had enough bad stuff for a while!!!

    That is a pretty cool looking library. I am a card carrying member of my local library, but sadly do not go very often.

    I love the library, too! I thought it was so neat when they put their index online and then you could reserve books. I have a Kindle now, so I don’t check out real books, but I do check out the books they have in a Kindle format. I still like going to their book sales, but I don’t buy much since I have the Kindle and my storage space is small in the RV. I really don’t understand why more people don’t use their library more instead of buying so many books. I am the only one in the family that uses it.

    BTW, I went to a Barnes and Noble yesterday. It was the first time since I have been on the road. I just love looking at all the books. LOL

  • That looks like a fantastic library. I think there are more books in my house than our public library!

  • I’m jealous! Our library isn’t the best

    I agree! I love the library, and I can even borrow ebooks! As a kid, I’d have lived at the library if I could have.

    I love going to the library! We get our classic movies there too. You can sign out 5 movies at a time for 7 days.

    When I come to visit you’ll have to take me to your library! 😀 It’s a lovely building. Our library used to be within walking distance of my job. On days when it’s just all too much I would wander down there…now I have to drive, but only a short drive. There’s something so comforting to me just being in the library. And that’s a terrific picture for your daily inspiration. Is it there at the library too?

      This sculpture is in front of my library. I just love it. It’s hard to see in the picture, but there’s a little fairy perched beside the child.

    I love the Mishawaka library also! Even more since they have e-books now.
