A True Story of Living in the Library

When I am the first one in the building or the last one out, I sometimes think that our library would be a nice place to live. I think a shower is the only missing necessity. I guess I could also use a bed, but I might just fall asleep reading books in the comfy chairs close to the fireplace.

I was surprised to find an article in the February issue of American Libraries by a woman who grew up actually living in libraries in New York City. How lucky can you be? She could wander around alone on Sundays and have family parties in banquet rooms! Please read "Mr. Mitchell and His 'Liberry' Girls" by Carolyn Mitchell Rhodes in American Libraries, February 2006, pages 30-31.
