Thank you LiteraryChicks for sharing your love of the library and your library cards, both old (circa 1995ish) and new! Welcome back to NYPL :)
Thank you ALSO for giving us a wonderful Flashback Friday photo. A very timely photo, too… stay tuned tomorrow for more information!
Say hello to my NYPL card. The last time I had a library card was eons ago- so talk about a blast from the past. I’m not sure exactly how old I was when I decided that I rather go to a bookstore than a library, but what I do remember is that I wanted to keep my books. I loved the smell of new books and I adored the idea that I would be the first one to own them… Now I am a proud owner of hundreds of books. In order to save some space (and money!), it’s back to the library I go.
I hope everyone’s having a fantastic Friday. Go enjoy the beautiful weather.
