Shall stay the determined library patron from his favorite pastime. As a matter of fact, when the weather is rainy or snowy outside, the thought of curling up with a good book, or browsing through the stacks looking for one, becomes ever more attractive.
This week Ann Arbor had its share of both rain and snow, and the readers and browsers were out in force at the main library on Fifth Ave.
First the regulars who come at 9 a.m. opening to read the newspapers or the current magazines on the periodicals shelves.
Then the housewives, some with small children in tow. While mom selects her novel, the youngsters look over the picture books in the children's section.
University students frequently come to do research for papers, some purely because the library is quieter than most student ones on campus.
Thursday's story hour at 10:30 a.m. always sees a pack of small fry in the basement auditorium.
And then after school come the junior and senior high schoolers to select books or use the reference section to write themes.
Up till closing time each day the library is a quietly busy place, and now that winter's here it is apt to be more so.
