Spring Has Sprung
by Bronwyn Houldsworth
A finalist in a national competition, this story was inspired by the two librarians who presided over our town library when I was a child. They seemed intimidating and a little scary, yet each year before Christmas they invited me to choose six new books for the holidays, from many boxes of new arrivals. I still remember my excitement, and the scent of those books. To this day, I love libraries.
