“The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.”

-Albert Einstein

If that isn’t a fitting tribute to libraries, I don’t know what is.

This week, we celebrate National Library Week, when it’s important not only to know where your local library is, but to show up and demonstrate your appreciation for all our libraries have to offer.

I’ve included a photo of my favorite library back in my college days, where I spent many an hour tucked away studying. I do still miss it sometimes…

Sadly, Italian libraries aren’t as dynamic as what I’m used to back in the US, so I look forward to getting back to my local NY library when I visit home this summer. However, it’s a great time to be thankful for our libraries – and a good week to thank your local librarian.

Happy National Library Week to all!
