Sometimes when you visit old places from your childhood it’s not them that have changed so much as you.
The Hillsboro, TX library, inside the old post office, is where I got my first library card and where I checked out books from until we moved to the Houston area when I was ten. It’s one of my favorite places to go back and visit every couple of years. I’m amazed at how little it changes while I continue to grow and change. It was closed when I visited it with friends last week but I don’t need to go inside to still remember where the Boxcar Children series was shelved.
Where did you get your first library card and what books did you check out with it?
