The good old library....

The big old brass plaque on the wall in the library's entrance lobby said, in Roman numerals, MCMVIII.

So, OK, the women at the desk knew the library is old, one of them proudly said "1905" when I asked. And they were proud to point out the recent addition, a large room filled with stacks and filling up with people as we walked through minutes after the library opened.

The American history section was more than decent. That's my standard of excellence.

And the very big, very old carved wooden American eagle standing guard at the stairway was more than excellent. That's one of my standards of decency....

Books and birds and MCMVIII, I was loving' it....
