On Tuesday, Jennifer at Overflowing With Thankfulness wrote a post about the Library in her town and I so loved it, as I am a big fan of Libraries. You can see her post here. So, today for my Thankful Thursday post, I'd like to show you a couple pictures from my local Library as I am so thankful for it. I love to read and have loved to read since I was a little girl. I remember getting to go to this Library when I was little and I remember one in a nearby town that we used to live in and mom taking us kids in the summer. I would get all these Junior Biographies of historical characters such as: Molly Pitcher, Clara Barton, Abraham Lincoln, etc. I just loved reading. Also, of course, the Little House Books and Trixie Beldon, just so many.
I believe my mom instilled the love of reading for me and also some teachers who read to us out loud in class and then I'd get the books and read them myself. And still today, I love to read good, clean fiction and some biographies, too. Once in awhile I'll even read a mystery, but usually I get to antsy and can hardly wait until the end. I haven't been inside recently due to the you know what, but I'm always getting ebooks from there for my Kindle and also through the Libby app which is connected to my Library card. I also get audio books to download to my computer and listen to while I'm working.
I went to the Library's website and checked on the history. In 1903 Andrew Carnegie offered $10,000.00 to Lebanon for a public Library. And the rest is history that you can read right here.

So here are a few of my pictures from my library.

I am so thankful God gave me a mom who passed on to me her love of reading.
So what are you thankful for today.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.
