Each summer when school let out, we would load into the station wagon every two weeks to make a trip to the library. The book check out limit was six books for two weeks. During the summer, we always checked out the maximum! If we all finished them early, Mom would take us back to check out more.
I read every book our library had by Lois Lenski that summer. Her books took me to places all over the United States in her Round About America series long before Internet or cable tv. When my girls were old enough I wanted them to enjoy them too. The problem was...our library had only one.
