Moment Six: Festival
Missus Merrie chimed in, “I could search the Hopkins County Public Library. May I?” Miss Merry searched the county library system. “There is one book on cursive, The Cursive Handwriting Workbook. It’s located at our sister branch, Warren County Public Library. I can have the book delivered in a few weeks. Can you wait?”
“We’ll wait!” said Gulia.
“Which of you has a library card? I can place the hold now if you like,” said Missus Merrie.
Gulia whipped out hers. “Here, use mine!”
“You won’t get far in this town without a library card, mister. I can issue you a number now, and come by the public library Tuesday for your card. There, the handwriting book is reserved on Gulia’s card. I will also add some picture books my son illustrated. You can read them while you wait, Gulia!” said Missus Merrie. If there was anything you could fault her for, it was pushing her son’s literature.
