Is Your Library Card Up-To-Date?

     Our library has positioned itself in the present as far as technology is concerned.  I knew it was time for me to come to terms with my lack of tech saavy when I found my local library had a website aaaaaand it was interactive.  Hoping books never become a thing of the past, I ventured down to renew my library card only to be told that it was an outdated relic and was issued a brand new one along with a matching one for my keyring (they must’ve had people like me in mind when they decided on that option…I always had a hard time keeping up with my library card).

    My first book, even with an extension, didn’t get read.  It may have been the time I opted to check it out…Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s…I’m almost sure that’s the reason.  Today, I checked out another book.  The librarian asked, “Just the one?”.  “Yes.  Just the one.  Baby steps, eh?”, I replied.  She got a chuckle out of that but I was so serious.  I’ve never been a reader.  I fall asleep.  There may have been a handful of books that have held my attention long enough for me to read from start to finish.  I can remember the titles of even less; My Side of the Mountain, Dear Lovey Hart, I Am Desperate, The Flame and The Flower, The Girl Who Cried Flowers.  I’ve tried a gazillion times with as many different books of a variety of subjects to be an avid reader…I’ll keep trying.  The worst thing that could happen is I’ll get more sleep…that can’t be a bad thing.
