It was all about the stickers and stamps, really.
One summer I got dropped off at the library for the kid's summer reading program, and like the over-achiever I am, my aim was to have as many gold stars on my reading checklist as possible.
Not only was I memorized by the order - everything had it's place! But there were the stamps - yep, I'm aging myself - the good ol' date stamps librarians used on those little cards that slipped in a front pocket.
More coming soon...
