Witnessing history

After more than 100 years in the same building, the Geneva Public Library broke ground last week for a new, state-of-the-art facility. 

Dozens of residents were there to witness the historic event, and I was impressed with how many children were there, excited for their new library. They were given plastic hard hats to commemorate the occasion.

The library for me as a kid was so special. It was where our community converged and the world opened up to me through books. 

The stairway that led down to the children’s department featured a hand-made quilt, with individual squares made by local seamstresses, including my best friend’s mom. My eye was always drawn to her quilt square every time I took those stairs.
