READATHON 2014: Why we go

THE STORY:

As a kid, I'd walk to the public library across the street from my school every day. I'd tell my parents that I was doing my homework - which I often was - but that's not really why I went. I went alone, I went with friends, I went to find something new to read, I went to use the computers, I went to get a DVD, I went to take a class, I went because there were big windows, I went because it was hot outside in Florida and cool inside the library. I went to the public library every day because it. was. awesome. And it still is.

With the years opening my eyes to a world that was bigger than just me, public libraries have only gotten more awesome. Sure, they are still amazing for all the reasons I experienced as a kid. But now I understand that my story is only one story and that a public library is a place full of stories. I don't mean that in the way you might expect; of course, there's always something excellent to read at TCPL.

I mean that: to each person who walks in the door, this library is a place just for them. Each person has a story - a laundry list of reasons, really - about "why they go" to the public library. Miraculously, a single building on the corner of Green & Cayuga can house us all. This library isn't a catalog of books; it's a catalog of people.

Please join me in support of the Tompkins County Public Library. Make a donation, in any amount, and stand with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

To doing great things together,

Liz
