I love this post:
The author starts with praise for the concept of the public library:
The public library is a phenomena that to this day I still can’t get over. Free knowledge, for anyone. Literally, anyone. I can’t think of an equivalent other than going to a clothing store, “checking out” an outfit, wearing the outfit and returning it in four weeks, free of charge.
Yes, indeed. It’s a lovely ode to reading and libraries. Wander over and take a minute to read it.
