Our Brand New Library


The library opening was huge. There were about a thousand people there. The mayor spoke; there was face painting and a magician and a band; every chair and every bench was taken with people reading or nursing; there was a line to get in the door and the line to check out books was into the stacks; the bike rack was overflowing. It was pretty much like Norman Rockwell playing a drum circle in my brain. Now you know where to find me Monday through Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Oh, and here's a shot from the foyer looking up at the installation made from thousands of salvaged typewriter keys.
