Aha! Your mention of Rhonda’s book reminded me that I, too, was overdue for a visit to my local library. According to the online catalogue a book I have been wanting to read for months – Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg – had finally been returned to the shelf, so I pedalled over this afternoon to claim my prize! I know my photos make it look like I am the only person who lives in Corning, but the library is very well patronised. There were many people out and about today enjoying the last days of summer proper, and more than a few were to be found in the library’s air conditioned periodicals section. And what library is complete without a newspaper stand?
