Just because I own a pile of eReaders doesn’t mean I hate books (well, physical books). As anyone who has visited my home can attest to, I love books.
I was rooting around in a desk drawer looking for something, as you do, when I came across the pile of library cards pictured above. The red one is for the New York Public Library, the yellow one hails from the Bethlehem Area Public Library, and the gray one is for the Yonkers Public Library.
I clearly remember my mom taking me to the Will Library on Central Avenue to get my very first library card (I was very young, though I can’t recall exactly how old I was). Here’s what the Will Library looks like, courtesy of Flickr user bitchcakesny:
When I was a kid I didn’t really give the architecture too much though, it was just my library. However, looking at it now I really dig the building, and the font they used on the Yonkers Public Library sign.
I will admit, though, that despite my love of libraries I couldn’t find my Philadelphia library card to add to the photo-shoot. I have one, though I have no idea where it is.
