The Front Porch Library

September 12, 2010 § 1 Comment

This is a deceptive view of a corner of the library.

You can see one of the two rockers that are big enough for an adult reader and a child to share, and the wooden book case that holds series books like “Captain Underpants” and “Junie B. Jones,” and a milk carton of picture books, and the dust jacket from “”The Monster Who Ate My Peas” taped up like a poster, and the sunlight coming through the porch screen.

What is missing is the blur of kids and the hubbub that surrounds them.

That will arrive at four this afternoon.

    Adrian… this looks like the closest thing to heaven I’ve seen in a long time! I can feel the air move while I rock and wait for those kids to show up.
