I am a law graduate, we had to refer many books for academic. It was really golden age of my life. I have read many [url=http://www.clazwork.com/]law essay writing service[/url] books. In my reading list auto-biographies take back role. When I remember my college days, the indelible memories are belonging to the college library.
First memory for this baby boomer is the Toman Branch Library located at 28th (ish) and Pulaski. The building I remember is gone, but I distinctly remember it "smelled" like a library. We walked there from more than a few blocks away. Hope kids are walking to the new library.
The first public library we used was the Portage Park branch, which was located in a storefront on the south side of the 5300 block of West Irving Park Road. That was quite a haul from home for a young kid, so we were happy when the West Addison Branch opened up somewhat later. It was in a storefront in the 7500 Block of Addison. The store is now a tropical fish store. As we got older, I remember going down to the old main library at Michigan and Randolph, and getting lost in the old book stacks. If I remember correctly the floors were actually of very thick glass with metal frames and allowed light to filter through the stacks. What ever happened to the old GAR Musuem that used to be on the second floor? Going over to Pixley and Ehlers across the street after our homework as also a pleasure.
My first library, in about the late 40s, was a branch library in a store front, located just east of Halsted on the north side of Fullerton. It was at this library that I checked out my very first book, written by L. Frank Baum. Thanks to one of my elementary school teachers who read a part of Baum's Wizard of Oz, shortly before the end of the school each day, to the rapt attention of every kid in her class.
