The librarian knew all of us, of course. A little lady, Miss Schadel, adored my mother! Whenever new books came in, she would call my mom and hold them for her until mom or one of us could go pick them up! My mom even served on the library board for many years, so the library was like a second home to me on many rainy days...or even sunny days when I could get away!
