Tracy Library, Flower Gardens, Rose Gardens, NatureI have also been having many memories about libraries this week. I worked in several libraries during my school years and have had library cards in many different libraries through the years. Libraries have always been important to me as they are a great repository of knowledge and an important part of our education system.

Ashland Kansas, Library, New library, eagle projectI am also having some great memories of the library in the town where I graduated from High School. My Eagle Scout project was helping to coordinate moving the books from the old library to a new one that was constructed while I was in High School. I then did volunteer work at the library until I headed off to college.

The library in Ashland, Kansas just recently won an award for being the Best Small Public Library in Kansas in 2018.

Now back to reading some of the books I have checked out šŸ™‚
