Why I Love the Library
It is my cathedral, my temple, my haven.
It’s the hush that welcomes me at the front door. It’s the quiet clicking of computer keys and the hushed chatter of a librarian helping a patron.
It’s the slightly louder response of a person whose bag is bulging with the details of daily life, his disheveled appearance not at all off-putting to the librarian who accepts whoever walks in the door.
It’s the Possibility!
Do I want to learn how to write a business plan? Read a novel that interweaves history, romance and social justice? Build a birdhouse? Discover what people wore in the 1500’s?
Looking for a job? They can help discover openings and research the company.
Those librarians know the right way to search for every question you can imagine.
And then some.
It is all there.
It is all available.
It’s hope. It’s opportunity.
It’s open to all.
It is what a church was meant to be.

This is Bethany’s dream location. We love our library. I would say the Darien Library is the hub of the town. I completely agree.. exponential possibility. I haven’t bought a book for years. I just go there, ask questions, and then follow. And by the way, not only by myself, but with my book group, and periodically with the entire town (when we do a town read). This has been so healthy for me because it has gotten me to read tons of books I never would have picked up on my own!
I love the One Town, One Book series and got to hear the author of “The Song Poet” after reading it in MN, where she lived. So enlightening.So powerful-those shared stories.
