One of my favorite things to do around the lily pad is to relax and read a good book. Since I happen to be employed by the Fulton County Public Library, I am surrounded by good books. Even If I worked elsewhere I would still be making frequent trips to the wonderful world of books found at the library.
There are so many wonderful resources and services at the library that I’ve often wondered how to take advantage of them all. One day as I was hopping around amongst the stacks looking for my next book, I had an idea. It was a crazy idea, but an intriguing one. Although I read all sorts of things, I am primarily a nonfiction reader. What would happen, I wondered, if I could start at 000 and work my way through the entire library? Thus began my ludicrous and amusing project of reading through the entire Fulton County Public Library.
In the coming posts, I will be sharing my journey–and it’s surprises–that have resulted from this enterprise. Obviously no one can read every single book there is to read so right from the beginning I made it my intention to read representative books from each section of the library as well as to experience all of the library’s resources. This is still quite an ambitious goal. I’ve laughed, learned, and even cried at times on this journey. I invite you to follow me in my endeavor and you may just find yourself laughing, learning, and maybe a bit teary eyed at times as well.
