Surprisingly, I do not mean West Virginia, although that is their motto. I’m spending the morning at the public library in Rapid City, SD. And it really is lovely. Books everywhere. Only the subdued sound of pages turning, and the occasional low whisper. Beautiful!
I brought my kids, too, since the library has an awesome children’s section, complete with a small aviary, computers, chess and checkers sets, and of course, a zillion books.
Ok, I’m not sure how or when my kids learned to play chess, because I sure didn’t teach them! :)
For the ones who don’t care to play chess, there are plenty of other things to do – like read!
What is your idea of almost heaven?
