I had a friend in first grade who teased me every Monday on library day.
The librarians loved me, though. They'd call each other over to the counter and have me perform like a trained seal.
My library card number was etched into my brain. My phone number wouldn't stick.
The library has always been a magical place to me. All those books. Your books as long as you took good care of them and returned them on time so the next person waiting for them could check them out.
Librarians at my local library are still impressed that I can recite my library card number without looking.
I borrow most of my books online now. They are easier to read and my local library is very small. I still enjoy typing my library card number into the log on screen by memory. And, as you can see, I still enjoy keeping my library card in my wallet.
Do you have a library card?
