My daughter’s new library card gives her “a sense of pride and empowerment… a symbol of independence and maturity. …She even asked at dinner last night, "the next time we go to the library can I just go in and you guys wait in the car? I have my own card now." …(Hopefully, she'll remember to crack a window.) – Tom B.
