Why I Use My Library
When I learned to read in grammar school a whole new world opened up to me.  I have been reading ever since and the Clapp Memorial staff have gone above and beyond in keeping me supplied with reading material.  The library is accessible, and, they not only keep the latest in non- fiction, but all popular books in current print.  Several times I asked for a book they did not stock and they went out of their way to get it for me.  Never before have I seen so many young children using a library.  The Clapp staff have so many programs for the little people and it is a joy to see them take part.  Why "Winter in the Willows" as my favorite book? I was the only one that volunteered to read it for our book club and I found it so enchanting that I bought if for my granddaughter.  By the way, I'm 77 and a lifelong reader!
