In a posting from October, 2016 I featured one of the quaint, small libraries in a city park near my house that had fallen in disrepair and suffered from a dearth of books. It's only offering was pro football coach Pete Carroll's treatise on coaching and winning. (Why does it always have to be about winning?) On a recent weekend walk, I noticed that it still suffers a lack of inventory, but at least it has a glass (albeit opaque) protective cupboard door.
As you may recall my partner Denise and I did a purge of books earlier this year, many of which were donated to our local Decatur public library and will be available at the upcoming Friends of the Library sale on Memorial Day Weekend. But I have held a few back to stock my adopted little library. It's adjacent the Glenwood Lake playground and tennis courts and I have selected books that may appeal to bored spectators, whether they are watching children on the monkey bars or a spouse's neverending tennis lesson. Enjoy!
