I returned a library book for someone today. Now, that in itself doesn’t sound like a big deal. Thing is, the library is seven hours, two provinces and one country away from my house.
No biggie though, I love coming here (as you might have noticed from the one or two or 10 Haskell Free-love letter posts I’ve done from here).
The sweetest thing was, when I told the librarian I was returning the book for someone else and I’d like to pay the overdue fine, she laughed and said, “Oh, we’ve done away with all that.”
The difference between a small town and the big city, I guess. So instead, I put a donation in the library’s restoration fund box. And then spent a few moments bonding with their books.
If you have a favourite library, or book, I’d love to hear about it!
