I’ve said it before, but I love libraries of all sorts. Not only because I am a book lover, but because one of the ways I supported myself during my college years was by working in the university library. I still vividly remember pushing my shelving cart through all those aisles of books, thinking, If only I could have a book I’ve written in a library someday! Well, God is good and that dream has come true. Like the other Inspired by Life authors, my books are in many libraries across the country, and hopefully in yours as well.
In the next photo, I am standing outside my local library in the St. Paul, Minnesota suburb where I live. The library has recently moved to a brand new building. A kind reader had alerted me to this sign, but I visited the new library for the first time last week, and saw the sign in person. (My husband took these pictures. He goes to this library frequently since he works nearby. He loves books and reads even more than I do!)
On the sign, the letters spelling LIBRARY are printed with the names of Minnesota authors, several I’ve been blessed to meet. And there, if you look reeeeeeeeeally closely at the highest R, is my name.
I know it’s a small thing. I realize 999 out of 1000 visitors would never even notice, and that’s all right. But I know it’s there, and I’m thankful for this sign of a long-cherished dream come true.
Been to your local library lately? 🙂
