I remember when I was a very little girl the first time my mother took me to the Library. We were living in a very big city at the time but the library was a very small place, situated upstairs. We climbed the stairs and entered into a place that was magic to me. I remember the low shelf next to the window with lots of colorful children's books. I must have been about 4 years old, because I was not in school and probably not reading yet. I sat by the window and looked through many of the picture books. I am sure we took a few books home with us that day. We went back to that library many times, as I still remember checking out books from that library while I was in elementary school.
Books have always held a fascination to me. They are your friends when you are lonely, sick, or when you just want to travel to a different place or time. The library is also a great resource for quilting books. I have a very healthy collections of quilting books in my own library, but sometimes, I just enjoy looking at other books for ideas. I have checked out Harriet Hargrove and Sue Nickels machine quilting books and kept them for the maximum time allowed!
Recently I picked up these little gems.
What fun to browse through these books and enjoy the amazing resource the library affords. Have you ever checked what your local library has available? You might be pleasantly surprised.
