Yesterday a young man (20s) came in to get his first library card.
Not for himself.
His girlfriend is coming to visit him for the summer, and she loves to read. So he wanted her to be able to use the library while she was staying with him.
He was so sweet and earnest.
Today i met the girlfriend, holding that library card, talking with such pride and love about ”this is my boyfriends card.“ and how he surprised her by thinking of it, and giving it to her. She is just as sweet.
My heart grew three sizes.
