A Library Visit…And My Appreciation.

I couple weeks ago while on vacation in western Pennsylvania, I had the pleasure of spending some time in the quaint, historic town of Bedford, PA.  Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains, this lovely town is the perfect place for a stop off the famed “LINCOLN HIGHWAY” AKA Route 30. While in Bedford, I stopped in the local library and was thrilled to see how much thought, care and attention was given to the children’s section of the

Teen section of the library.

library.   Not only did they have a separate room for kids, there was another room, artistically decorated, for teens.  As a child, I was always spending time at my local library with it’s stiff-backed chairs and worn tables. This modern, comfortable and welcoming place would have made it so much more inviting, I would have had a hard time leaving!

The next time you’re in western PA, stop by the town and maybe even visit the library.  Support your own local libraries. Where would we writers…and readers be without their support?  Three Cheers for Libraries!

And…three cheers for all the wonderful writers and bloggers who took part in my WHEELS OF CHANGE  Blog Tour, which officially ends today.  I really enjoyed being your guest and appreciate your helping me spread the word about the book.  You helped make the launch a success, and for that I am truly grateful!  If you’d like to check out the last stop on the tour, here it is: http://www.tmwallace.com

  1. Darlene, I love hearing about libraries. I’m in mine a LOT 🙂 Today when I stopped in to pick up one of the books I ordered, I came face-to-face with a double-shelf rolling rack filled with picture books selling for 25 cents. I think I sat there for an hour and came home with 11 lol I have NO room anymore! And while I was doing that, I was chatting with one of the librarians. In the conversation, she told me there’s a children’s library on the Princeton University campus. It’s too long of a walk from the Theological Seminary, otherwise I’d go. I can’t imagine I’d get down there early enough to go before I had to register, but she said it was really nice 🙂
