Last week I took my library books back to the old library, it is closing its doors after 126 years and in September down the hill from the Bibliotheque a new Mediatheque will replace the old.
Children, students and workers are soon to be on holiday. That afternoon after I left the old library, I walked around to the Jardin Public. Teenagers shouted and laughed at jokes, some ran around calling out to one another.
I saw a small group looking up at a lad as he told them some story. There was a magical feeling of happiness, that end of term fever.
Everything starts a fresh in September, and the new library will be a building with walls of glass, named, La Clairiere.
If you have been dashing around, or studying like mad I hope that you can enjoy some lazy days soon.
