Libraries have personalities. Some are cold impersonal and seem to say, “These are my books, don’t touch them.” Some tiny and shy, stay tucked in a corner saying, I’m friendly but not important. Lockhart’s Eugene Clark Library in Lockhart, Texas, is one of my favorite. It is one of the oldest library buildings in Texas. It was never anything else. It was built to offer books to enrich the lives of those who lived in the area. When I was taking care of my grandchildren in Kyle, I noticed a historic battle had taken place on Plum Creek in the area. Of course, I had to investigate. I drive down and walked into the hallowed halls of books. The structure is stately and beautiful, but the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. The stained glass window and impressive ceiling, proclaim, “We value knowledge and define it as holy and at the same time, whispers, “Your next favorite book waits around the corner in a cozy nook.”–
