During the summer, library patron, Roger Branville and his sons, Jason and Stephen, visited the Cambridge Public Library. Roger wanted the boys to read. They approached the reference desk while I was working. It seemed Jason loved to read, but Steven wasn’t much into it. When I found out that Steven liked to fish, I took him to the fishing section in the library.
Over the summer, he has read several books about catching walleyes and northern pike. Since I love to fish, I was soon getting fishing reports from various family members when they came to get more materials. Out on the lake, Stephen was showing-up seasoned fisher people. “How’d you do that?” they asked. “I went to the library, checked out some books and read them, ” Steven replied.
Do you have a skill you’d like to improve? Stop by the library and see what we can find!
