Do you remember the time….
when libraries were filled with card catalogs, cardigans, and spectacles?

Do you remember the time…
when the library ladies wore their hair in a bun,

back when hearing the words “reading opens your mind to worlds of wonders” was so much fun,

when thumbing through a card catalog was quite the spectacle?

Do you remember…
when Saturday mornings at the library were filled with family fun,

back when you were taught to use your inside voice and SHHH was the rule of thumb,

back when your search engines were The Card Catalog or a Superhero Library Lady caped with a cardigan and masked with a pair of spectacles?

Do you remember the time…
when you first discovered the book was better than the movie,

back when the childrens librarian first taught you how to Dewey,

when thumbing through a card catalog was quite the spectacle?
