I’m pretty fortunate to have so many easily accessible libraries. The Wheaton Public Library I frequent most. It’s a two-minute drive from work. It’s my lunch-time refuge. I realized a couple weeks ago that the Glen Ellyn Public Library is also a two-minute drive from work. Back in 1997/8 during my first post-college job, the GEPL was my lunch-time refuge.
The Helen Plum Memorial Library (in Lombard, IL) and Villa Park Public Library are directly on my driving path home. And then the coo-day-craw of them all is the library for my hometown, the Elmhurst Public Library. It is the most beautiful public library I have ever visited. Though it’s a 5 minute drive beyond my house.
