Library Month

September is Library Card Month in the US! (We have a month for everything. “Things” have to share months, since there are not nearly enough in a year.)
Before 1900 in the US, most libraries were available only to subscribers. Over time, public libraries grew in number. By 1930, half the American public libraries had been built by a wealthy philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Today, only the smallest towns in the US do not have a public library.
I’ve always been a library fan, and electronic collections just make libraries better. I hope that you, like me, will visit your library in September.
