I drove to the library yesterday only to discover that it is being remodeled. It was a strange feeling, driving up to a construction lot where I expected to find a building that had been an importance presence my entire life. That library was a huge part of my childhood.
Fortunately it isn’t gone forever. A new building is going to replace the one that was torn down. After sitting in my car dumbfounded for a few minutes and then calling my dad, I learned that the library is currently in the mall. I proceeded to get lost on my way there.
I have realized that although I’m from here, I’m no longer a resident.
