Book Worms on Parade in Quarryville

We had a great time last night in Quarryville where we were escorted in style by these Book Worms along the parade route. It was a glorious evening and folks came out in droves. It was heartening to hear the shouts of support for the Quarryville Library as we passed by. If you've ever wondered about the place of libraries in small towns, you should hitch a ride with us during a parade and hear what people are saying and see how they react. It is no small thing when a ten-year-old boy stands up among his friends and shouts, "I love to read! The Library rocks!"

I couldn't resist this picture... hug a librarian, indeed!
