My hometown library is important to me because it brings me joy and comfort in many different ways, from when I was a child to the present. The library in my hometown is the Clarington Public Library and I thought of it like another home. Reading books as a child, having a special area just for kids, it brought a new adventure for me. To this day the library still brings me happiness every time I go to search for a new undiscovered book to read, to sit for hours in peacefulness. The feeling of not having to think about life for a couple of hours and just escape into a book’s world is the best pastime. It was also kind of a routine, or a special outing that my mom and I could do together, just the two of us. I believe that the library is a place like no other and it will always have some importance to me.
