The Madison Public Library has been a special place for me, ever since I was a young child because it’s where my love of learning and reading began. My mom took me there often. Her interest in learning and reading sparked mine. It may seem silly to some, but I can still remember having to use the stools they had in the old library to reach the drinking fountain before they remodeled. This demonstrates how young I was when my journey to learning and reading began. I’m thankful my mom helped on that journey. The library wasn’t all about books though, I remember loving to borrow a movie or two to watch with my family. One of our favorites was the Anne of Green Gables series, with Megan Follows. I have many fond memories with my older sister watching those series of movies. It brought us closer together. I’m grateful I’ve had the chance to use the library throughout my life. It’s great to have a place with so many great books and movies to borrow. I also enjoy all the fun activities they offer. The summer reading program has been a lot of fun too! ow that I have a family of my own, I love to bring my kids to the library and hope to share with them my love of reading and learning. They have really enjoyed finding new books to read from the library. The summer reading program has been great in helping them continue reading during the summer. Any mom can appreciate that! I hope my kids too will have fond memories of the Madison Public Library like having to use a stool to get a drink from the drinking fountain, or laughing together on the couch while watching Anne of Green Gables, or best of all the warmth of my arms around them as we read a book together that we picked out from the library!
