My First Library

"My first library was actually a bookmobile. My elementary school did not have its own library so each week the bookmobile would show up next to the playground. My favorite day of the week! I couldn’t wait to get inside to check for new books on horses, books about how to draw horses, and stories about horses. Marguerite Henry was my favorite author (Misty of Chincoteague! King of the Wind!). Sam Savitt wrote the best books on how to draw horses. Eventually, I discovered Laura Ingalls Wilder and Louisa May Alcott and The Chronicles of Narnia, and there was no stopping me. The Bookmobile was cramped and crowded, but it held a world of books within it." ‪#‎MyFirstLibrary‬ ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬
