I love this quote and this picture.
Thank you to The Real Estreya for giving me permission to feature her beautiful daughter, Stasia, reading in front of the library.

I’m pretty sure this picture was taken over 25 years ago, because I have one almost just like it. Not the flannel shirts, but the fake library background. Olan Mills, the chain of photography studios, offered the books as a background along with black, blue, white, etc. Of course, I jumped at the chance to be in a picture with books and so did this family. By the way, don’t ask me about the telemarketing job I had with Olan Mills in college where I worked exactly one day. Image: Team-Zebra
Ms. Rowley labeled her picture as “Arthur reading to the girls” and tagged it “Ancestors”. Image: Jan Rowley
Libraries around the world, like this one in Southwest Washington, sponsor family reading nights and read aloud events. Image: Timberland Regional Library
