It’s and here is my library haul for January. Libraries are wonderful places. I’ve heard them be called temples of knowledge, vaults of civilizations, homes of enlightenment. To me, they are the gateways to new worlds. I can’t enter a library without finding 2-3 new books to take home.
I want to highlight Norfolk Public Libraries because they have given me so much. They were my summer haunts away from the heat. I would wander the stacks finding new things to learn about or new adventures to have. During college, they were my places of quiet solitude where I could work. Now, they are my respite from the ugliness of this world. 📖📖
Slover Library, Norfolk’s newest, is what modern libraries have come be. It is so much more than a place for books. They have equipment for photography and videography that can be used by members. They have gaming systems you can play with, DVDs to rent, and host free events for the community. They have beautiful art on display from local artists. And of course, stacks and stacks of beautiful books.
