One Simple Thing-Library Basket

We enjoy patronizing our local library
pretty much every week.

What a concept.
I mean, you walk in,
you pick out any book, DVD, or musical CD
in the whole place
and walk out with goodies to last you a couple of weeks.
Our community library system
even delivers books to your home
Not much is free these days.
With all the modern technology available,
it would be a terrible loss if libraries were no more.
Several friends have purchased electronic readers,
but I just can't bring myself to do that.
As long as libraries are around,
we'll be visiting.

Each week,
any materials acquired from the library
are placed in this basket.
Care is taken to place them back into
this designated container after enjoying them.
When time comes to return items,
we need only make one stop
to retrieve all materials due.

Having an appointed location
makes it easier to keep track of articles
and treat them with the respect and gratitude they deserve.
After all, we are thankful for the bounty
our library offers.
It is instrumental in educating us, entertaining us,
and helping us become all that we can be. 
No small feat.
