The old library still stands. It was here that I was first exposed to the joys of a library. I discovered mysterious secrets solved by Nancy Drew; sorrowed when Jo married the “old man” in Little Women; dreamed of being a nurse like Cherry Ames.
I read about poor children in “The Boxcar Children” and “The Five Little Peppers” all the while envying the brothers and sisters who played together.
I fell in love with the Hardy Boys. I enjoyed their books, but fell in love with the boys! I can’t remember which was my favorite, probably Frank.
