I enjoy the movies and lectures at the Downtown and Squirrel Hill Library. It's difficult for me to leave any library without checking out a new book. It's becoming my new addiction!!

Since tiz near Valentine's day I'm thinking how lovers are breathless w expectation, lovers of the CPL breathing steadily w deep satisfaction. No kidding. I moved to Pgh in large measure because of the library system, having been away 30 years and, as it turned out, splendidly unaware of the growth & flourishing that has taken place meantime. I am almost embarrassed, I use it so much--a state of abash whose best antidote I know is being a steady donor, hoping to be a better one. And also to volunteer soon as I get settled, which is taking time, tho I have (finally) bought a humble little house an hour & five minutes walk over hill & dale but beautifully partway through the park.
Very high on my list of favorites are the staff--so many so various so helpful.
I haven't yet had time to sample many of the programs but certainly hope to.
There's lots to love about the Burgh but the CPL is #1 w me. love to yinz every one.
