15 SNAPSHOT DAY One Day in the Life of Maryland Libraries One of my first memories was going to the library with my mom. We took out Thumbelina and on the way home stopped to look at the beautiful pictures while she read to me. Ever since, the library has been a refuge for me. A safe place. A quiet place. Some where to read. To get information. To bring my children. To be alone and still be with people. I love the library and all that it offers. Perry W., patron of Charles
