We received many excellent donations over the last three days and when the library was quiet around 3pm today I sat and glowed at the beauty of books. Jerome came in on Saturday morning and over a coffee we had a chat about the books he brought in and the theory of the multiverse - he lost me at the moment of a fundamental event (at which point the universe splits?) but I hope I never stop to marvel at other people's knowledge. Judy Lemezis from the Wellington Square Bookshop in Exton gave us a bunch of gems - from health and wellness to history and soccer. Elizabeth Shepard returned with another collection of perfect paperbacks for the shelves - including Forensics For Dummies. We now have everything.
And Ginkgo, Jerome and Michaelann's super friendly dog had a good look around - we need a water bowl and treats.

A word about 'here':
We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Lenape, original people of the mid-Atlantic area, forced west by British and US governments. Most Delaware Indian tribe descendants are now located in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Lenni Lenapes in Pennsylvania are not officially recognized as tribes by the United States, though an estimated 5000 Lenape Nation descendants live in the Delaware River area. We pay respects to the Lenape people both past and present. Please consider the many legacies of violence, displacement and settlement that form part of our collective histories. While increased public recognition of these legacies and processes of redress such as Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission are positive steps, concrete focus on return of land and land rights remains a distant horizon.
