Booking Through Thursday

Whether you usually read off of your own book pile or from the library shelves NOW, chances are you started off with trips to the library. (There’s no way my parents could otherwise have kept up with my book habit when I was 10.) So … What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have you any funny/odd memories of the library?

I don’t remember anyone taking me to the library because my earliest library memories come when I was around 10 and living in Halssila, which is near Jyväskylä in Central Finland. The library was next to the school so it was very convenient to pop in almost daily.

As for odd memories… None that I can remember since “meeting” weird people and “going” to exotic locations is probably out. 🙂 Libraries have always been very safe places for me.
