It's December 31st. The last day of 2014. I turned 30 this year. And I accomplished my "30" goal-- visit 30 libraries in my 30th year.

My original goal wasn't actually 30. It was to visit all 21 Sno-isle branches on my motorcycle. My husband and I finished that in September, but I wasn't finished with libraries yet. It almost felt anti-climactic to be done.
So, 21 Sno-isle libraries. Plus 9 more, but not all on my motorcycle (Duvall, Columbia City, Woodinville, North Bend, two in Everett, WA. Then Tigard and Portland in OR and Vancouver Central branch in B.C.). And I have pictures at each library.
There is so much more to say about my 30 library experience-- spills, thrills, books I read, pilgrimage motorcycle trip to one of our favorite kid's book locations, and foster children joining our family (and getting their first library cards). But for now, I'm just proud to say that I finished :)
I wonder what new libraries I will visit in 2015...
