    I once took my Daisy Girl Scouts to the library where the librarian had prepared a small talk for them about Amelia Earhart. As she talked I could not help but notice how she started to skip pages and then she allowed them to run around a circular room downstairs. The next week, I asked them about their trip to the library. Not a one remembered until I mentioned the room they ran around in.

    I remember meeting the librarian at my first school. She was this nice, white haired lady who always helped me find books and was very kind to me. It turns out that she lived a block away from the school, and I would see her numerous times over the years when I walked past her house. She always remembered me even when I was in high school a decade later.

    A few years before I was to transition from elementary school to middle school, a new librarian had come on board. She was very nice lady. I never really got to know her to well but I remember there was one time when she saw I was having a bad day and she just knew I needed to be a lone for a few minutes. She very subtly suggested I go to her office and just sit in there for a bit away from all the other students. I really appreciated what she did for me and I’ll never forget what she saw I needed and what she did for me.

    One of the librarians at the library where I grew up was also an elementary teacher & she used to let me check out more than the approved number of books because she knew how much I loved reading & that I would take care of the books so they wouldn’t be damaged & I would make sure to have them returned on time.

    when I was a kid one of my neighbors (two houses down) was also a librarian at my school. One night she decided to take matters into her own hands and asked me to go with her to go fetch books overdue. Of course, I knew most of the kids we went to get books from. She was loved by everyone who met her. Always had a smile on her face and something funny to say. It was like she was one of us kids/teens. Totally down to earth. Sadly, she later died of breast cancer. 🙁 I miss her dearly.

    I know it’s pretty much par for the course for a lifelong reader to love libraries, but I really do. Everywhere I move, the first thing I look for (other than a supermarket) is where the nearest library is. When I was younger, I was lucky enough to have my bus stop in front of the library. Of course it made sense for me to spend time in there before walking home. 🙂 The school library was always a fun place to be as well, and of course the librarian got to know me pretty well. I was even part of the Name That Book team. Nerdy, I know, but it was something that encouraged reading, and often books out of my comfort zone.
