My blogger friend Susan at Writing Straight From the Heart has joined Linda at A La Carte on Sundays for a nice tradition. Linda is hosting Gratitude Sunday each week and I think it's a great idea to really make you think about how blessed we all are! So, I have decided to link up and join in. This is week #3.
So, I am thankful for books and libraries this week. I am not a good reader nor an avid one, but I do love books! Jim and I go to the local library often for movies and I just get lost and time just stops when I'm in a library. So fun to explore a favorite crafts or a new cookbook...anything! It's one thing I feel like I really get my money's worth from my tax dollar. I know Kindles are the thing right now, but there's nothing like a real book in your hands! I love books.
Below is our beautiful Portland Library called Central Library. It's a lovely building in a park setting downtown. Isn't that a great picture of the interior? It was taken by our local newspaper, the Oregonian.
Last year, out little city of Troutdale got it's own library! We have lived here for 36 years and finally we have a small local library. It's in a strip mall.....quite a contrast from the one downtown!
My friend had this picture on her Facebook page this morning. Don't they look fun?
