Children’s summer library reading challenge lists were completed long before the break was over as my siblings and I devoured all types of books from our local library. How many children hear from their mothers “Put down that book and go out and play!”? As an adult, a local library card was a priority every place I’ve lived as the military moved me around, and while visiting Washington DC the first time, I even made time to get a Library of Congress card!
