My wife was a Library Director. My daughter’s early years were spent playing among the stacks. I love libraries. I love searching through and downloading ebooks from the Philadelphia Free Library from my couch.
So to my enthusiastic ski message board friends who want to read any of my books for free, I encourage you to visit your local library. If they don’t have my books, then by all means fill out a patron request form. Please be nice if they don’t have money in the budget – our local library is almost exclusively funded by donations and NOT tax dollars. Please make the request in person and not via the phone or email. Directors are busy people, often doing the work of two or three. Like my wife, they tend to get grouchy when they feel spammed. So take them chocolate. Offer them the remainder of your Starbucks gift card. Smile. Say please, ma’am, may I have another book by Cole.
And most importantly, don’t forget the sun screen at graduation.
