#Libraries have always been a sanctuary for me, here are 9 reasons I love them so much by #GemmaCorrell

The library has been a sanctuary for me for many years, from the tiny, cozy one at my elementary school to the glass palace of a public library where I spent my post-college years hanging out. (Bonus points: It also had a cafe and a pizza restaurant.)

For the two to six weeks that I hold a library book in my hands, it’s mine. I like thinking about how many other people have held the same book in their hands.
