My mother did not teach me to read. She left that to the good nuns. But once I started reading, it was Mom who introduced me to the public library that was within walking distance of our home.

I’m not sure how old I was when I got my own library card, probably 7 or 8, but I remember the thrill of checking out that first library book on a Saturday afternoon and curling up in bed with Mom that night so we could take turns reading the pages.
For Christmas, Mom bought me classics like “Tom Sawyer,” “Huckleberry Finn,” “A Tale of Two Cities” and “Jane Eyre” so I could build my own book collection, but that didn’t stop us from going to the public library. It was our Saturday afternoon ritual for many years.
