On trees growing in libraries

In a previous post, I talked about visiting a library that I didn’t like. Lucky for me, my library is part of a network making up five or six different libraries, so on Monday I went to a different one. I’ve been to this library before to sell books at an author talk, and really loved their children’s section: right in the middle of the library, towering over the picture book section, is a wonderful swirly metal tree. It lights up and changes colour, and looks like it has grown right out of a children’s novel. I’ll have to go visit again. I borrowed ‘Harriet the Spy’ by Louise Fitzhugh, Lemony Snicket’s ‘The Bad Beginning’ and a bind-up of four stories by Phillip Pullman, including ‘Clockwork’. I have a week off before university starts up again, so I’m hoping to get lots of reading done! (I haven’t in the past few days, due to stocktake at the bookstore. Groan.)
