A quick heartwarming note

Leaving work before the Thanksgiving break, something happened that made me keep a smile on my face all weekend, through the holiday madness and Black Friday shopping (which I particpated in for the first time this year).

I work at an Academic Library, so we seldom see young children or families. But as I was leaving last Tuesday evening, a family of four came in. They had two sons, one probably about one and the other around three or four. As the older boy came in, he shouted: “I SEE THE BOOKS!” His excitement about books was awesome. These are academic books that are far beyond him at this point – books on Mark Twain, or Quarks, or teaching Math. But he did not care. There were books, and he was happy.
