Tuesday * Library Time
Happy Tuesday -the last Tuesday of the month of August. Today I’am chatting about the
Library – History :
Library, traditionally, collection of books used for reading or study, or the building or room in which such a collection is kept. The word derives from the Latin liber, “book,” whereas a Latinized Greek word, bibliotheca, is the origin of the word for library in German, Russian, and the Romance languages.
Some of the earliest such institutions were founded in late 17th century England, such as Chetham’s Library in 1653, Innerpeffray Library in 1680 and Thomas Plume’s Library in 1704. In the American colonies, the Library Company of Philadelphia was started in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia, PA.
I’am a Bibliophile. A person who loves books. Yes – there is a word for it. And No cure. But one of my favorite places to go to is the Public Library. And I am sorry to say we dont have one in this town but the Library’s books are available on line in a E form. Or I can drive 20 minutes to the next town small private library. What’s nice is that all the small libraries are tied into a much larger system -which mean I can borrow books from all over the state. As a reader and Educator I love having that option , More Books – more fun.
So go visit your Li bray today and enjoy there vast collection -what ever your interest : Cook Books,Reference Romance, News and Magazines. Also the Library has special classes Reading time and computers to use. . A Library Card can open a new world to everyone – so give it a try. If you can’t get to the Library you can still borrow from here. Lisa
