Largo Library

Went to the library today to return my books and get a couple more just in case I am left with time and no electricity - will need something to do. I can always read by flashlight or candlelight.

This library is fabulous! Has a huge genealogical department. It reminds me of the Loussac library in Anchroage which is the first library I ever saw with reading rooms, comfy furiture, etc.
I remember when I was a kid and spent summers with my Dad, the library in Osceola (where he lived) would not let me check out books because I wasn't a full-time resident. We had a "membership" at a local hotel with a swimming pool that happened to be across the street from the library. I would swim in the mornings then in the hottest part of day would read Nancy Drew books in the library before returning to swim later in the afternoon. I can still smell that library when I think about it. I would hide my book in the stacks to ensure that no one checked it out before I finished. Bad girl!
