Day 25 #SOL21 Contemplating The Library Hold Shelf

Mask up.

Enter the library through sliding glass doors.

Get my temperature checked. 

Beeline it to the hold shelf. 

Scan for my last name. 

Bubble with excitement.

Read each title with glee. 

Brand new books, fresh from the publisher. 

Free. 

Ready to be read and shared. 

Celebrate #ownvoices.

Turn the pages.

Stretch. 

Grow. 

Think critically. 

Embrace contentment, joy, and hope.

A brighter world awaits.

Picture books make us all a bit more human.
