I love the Duxbury Free Library!!! you get freedom as soon as you enter through its doors. It has an amazingly wide array of books for everyone, especially fantasy readers (like me!) I can alway find something to check out-there is always more books to look at every time I go. there is absolute freedom as long as yo hold a library card in your hands. I LOVE THE DFL!!!!
Why I love the Library Contest: I was the new guy in town and she was just down the street. Kids told me to stay away from her but I couldn't. She was older, brilliant and drop dead gorgeous. Sometimes I would look out the window from 5th period history class and see her standing there. I'd smile. She gave me things, lot's of things. But for whatever reason, she always wanted them back. My parents were worried that we spent too much time together, that she was filling my head with 'all that fiction.' But she knew so much about the world - history, sports, geography, and current events. She was smarter then anyone I knew and I loved her. I thought for sure I was her favorite but when I found out she was giving other kids stuff too, cd's and movies. I was hurt, really hurt. Much later, when I had kids of my own, I introduced her to them. I wasn't sure what they'd think but they grew to love her and it was clear she loved them too. Sometimes they stayed with her when I had something important to do. She told them stories and gave them books, so many books. Strangely again, she always wanted them back. I'm older now, my kids are grown, my hair is turning grey. She looks the same. She gets up later. On Monday's, she's never around until two and she won't see me after 8. I don't ask her where she goes. It's not my business. We spend a lot of time together. Sometimes I sit and read for hours with her. Sometimes I just have a cup of coffee and look at a magazine. Other times if she's busy, I'll borrow a movie, (she has lots of movies). I'm always welcome and she's very generous. We are both having a good life and have shared a lot. We have something very special. She still gives me books, lots of books. And as it's been, for as long as I care to remember, she always wants them back. Craig Bloodgood February 9, 2010

Joey's essay was hard to read because we pasted it in from Word, so I retyped it here.
I love to go to the Duxbury Library because my mom never says "no" to anything about the library because she likes it there. When we go to other stores, she always says, "no," but never at the library. She says "yes" to anything in the library. I love the Duxbury Free Library because it has the best books ever. Ever. Me and my mom love to read the books at night. We bring back an amazing amount of books - try to guess how many...you would never guess...probably about a hundred a week. Right now we love to read the book Ramona the Pest. It is great. I use to go to a storytime, it was fun. I liked it because Mrs. D was very fun and we read stories and danced to the song "this is me, this is me, this is me and my energy." I like the toys that you have there and I hope you have a very nice Valentine's Day. Just wanted to say "Happy Valentine's Day, bye."

I love the Duxbury Free Library for so many reasons. It is the only way I can afford my bestseller addictions, keep up with my husband's technical journal reviews, satiate my son's serial reading habit, and keep my daughter current on magazines and DVDs. I love putting books on hold, reading list emails, librarian picks, summer reads and the "stress free book club". It is a great place to have a cup of coffee and catch up on subscription reading while the kids utilize a well stocked reference area. The staff is fantastic with holds and my website/online questions. I love the Library!

There is much more to this library than what meets the eye! There are so many books! I love the mysteries especially the Nancy Drew series!! There is music and movies too. It's a quiet place to read, study, or do homework. It's a place to find information or just think. You can look at paintings, relax, write, or even draw. I love the DFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
