>I have a new prized possession – a drawer from an old library card catalog. I saw it at the Minneapolis Public Library bookshop today – for $3 – and couldn’t help but snap it up.
I’m not entirely certain why this relic (which my daughter will never quite comprehend) has endeared itself to me, wormed its little way into my heart so. Maybe it’s the memories of sifting through those cards, searching out a treasure to take home and devour. Maybe it’s the bibliophile in me, unable to make wholeheartedly the shift to a paperless way of life. Whatever it is, I want to hug this thing to my chest and sigh. Repeatedly.
