Boy in library.

Whatever idiots think public libraries are no longer relevant or necessary obviously haven’t spent much time in one. News flash: two non-obvious things you can do at one are check out books for free AND look for cookies to eat that other patrons might have left. Little known fact: Public libraries have the cleanest garbage cans in the world.

On a lucky day, you might even find a chocolate chip one (pictured). Thanks for your kindness, humor, and general awesomeness always, this particular little library with best library staff ever. Seriously and truly.
