The Los Gatos Library announced the first five ticket winning children to enter their newly opened library.
I will not make any "golden ticket" or "The Cats Library" jokes here. This actually brought a genuine smile to my face and happiness to my heart: People vied for the opportunity to be the first to enter a library. Not a club, not a Wal-Mart, a library. Five children get to be in the history books as library supporters. This is important and interesting as proof that our culture is not completely devoid of genuine excitement over knowledge. This is a contest I can get behind in an era where the majority of stories I read are about library closures.
