My Favorite Nook

Posted by Audra on May 10, 2007

  I remember when I was young and would escape to the neighborhood Library Branch in Waterbury. Or as a college student, I would go and hide at the W.C.S.U. Library.  Libraries always seemed like a safe haven for me to squander my time away aimlessly. Whether it would be dodging my chores or just trying to get away from drunken roommates—the library offered me a quiet escape. Now mind you, my homework would get done first but then I would just browse the stacks and pull any book that would interest me~Of course there was always the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzincidental nap time that would freely occur! Did you ever notice how libraries always seem to have that comfy spot hidden away somewhere in a corner or at the end of a long dark stack? So toasty warm in a ray of sunlight—total ME time.  Where is your favorite spot at the OWL?
