I am thankful for my library card.
Today I checked out a mystery by Martha Grimes from the library to join all of the travel books I have on New Mexico. I just returned two books on CD and a magazine, and last week I returned a movie I didn't have time to watch--but that's not a problem, I can check it out again. I have discovered new music that I like and new music that I didn't like from the library. Also I have been to gardening programs, craft programs, history programs, and book club programs at my library. And someday when I get an E reader, I will check out books for it from the library.
I have been using the library since I was a very little girl and although my card has changed over time, I have always been thankful for it.
