Kanaye is hosting this hour’s challenge! We’re asked to share our first library memory/experience! I wish I could remember the actual first time I entered a library and saw what books can actually do, but alas I don’t remember that time. However, I do remember the time I signed up for the New York Public Library only 8 short months ago. I was unemployed and looking for a way to pass time in a new city, so I hiked down to the main branch of the public library on 42nd street and instantly my mind was blown. First of all the building is incredible on its own, then to top it off the copious amount of books they have in there is actually mind-boggling. I was literally like a kid in a candy store, except instead of sugary treats I was gaining knowledge. I must have walked around for a good five minutes before a concerned employee made me stop and get my new card. I have yet to return to this branch of the library, but I eagerly look forward to my next visit!
Note: for roughly the next two hours we’ll be participating in “Hitchfest”, a Twitter-based group where we watch movies by Alfred Hitchcock and discuss them. So, we’re going to take a quick two-hour break from mini challenges, but worry not! We will be back with more Read-A-Thon awesomeness soon!
