Book of the Year: Myriam Gurba's Creep
Have you ever had a literary crush?
Just in time for Valentine's Day: Which book character did you fall for?
January Poll Results: When did you get your first SLO County library card?
86 readers responded--More than half of you got your first card at least 20 years ago!
One reader recalled using the tiny one-room building that was the original Los Osos Library. Another reader still has the card they got at age 6 (signed with a backwards 's'!). And a shoutout to the college student who loves having their library card--We're glad you're here.
And for those who remember the Black Gold days: Thank you for sticking with us while we continue to expand our collections and services :)
