Local library system is impressive

I must applaud our wonderful library system. I have always been an avid reader and years ago discovered the benefits of getting my books from a library rather than buying countless volumes (as I had in the past). Our county system may be small, but it is comprehensive. A few years ago a friend sent me a list of what the New York Times believes are the top 100 novels ever. So I accepted the quest to include all 100 in and around my regular reading. Well, as I near the completion of that delightful undertaking I realized that I had found 92 of those books in our beloved library system. Pretty impressive as some of these books are pretty obscure.

So, thank you, library system, you are a great friend and resource to have on my side.
