Destination: Library

Have you read the picture book The Library by Sarah Stewart, illustrated by her husband, David Small? From the moment I saw the cover illustration, I knew I would love the book. I couldn’t resist that depiction of a young woman coming home from the library, her nose in a book and pulling a wagonload of books behind her, while her cat looks on. Books upon books, books and more books, until there was no room to move in her house filled floorboard to rafter with stacked-to-the-ceiling-high books. Her house and books formed a library, and her life came full circle, with her daily destination again becoming the trove full of treasures, her very own library of books. A library is a worthy destination for a reader… and a writer.
