From our Curate: Time for a Summer Read!

One of my favorite aspects about summer is the freedom to read books. This is a long-standing love of mine. I have some great childhood memories of long hours of lazing away the summer days while reading. I would jump on my bike and ride to the city library and pack up a basket full of books.
