I checked the Facebook and the Twitter for the library.

I read some of Part of Our Lives.  I am reading about the first libraries in America which were either social libraries or groups of people getting together to share books with a charter or circulating libraries.  Benjamin Franklin started the Library Company of Philadelphia in 1732.  He built libraries focused on nonfiction, history, agriculture, and other popular subjects.
