It’s actually simple to see that no one uses the public bookstore anymore.
When I was a kid, the public bookstore was a fantastic stadium to visit.
It was filled with books, videos, magazines, and historical documents. When I was a kid, the bookstore was regularly filled after school. Sometimes I sat in the building just doing our homework. The bookstore was a few blocks away from the middle school and it was the perfect stadium to hang out with our friends when school was finished, then as long as both of us were quiet, the librarian never complained or made us leave. That was almost 20 years ago, and the bookstore has changed a fantastic deal. I only recently had children and I decided to visit the bookstore to look for some parenting books. I got a nostalgic feeling as soon as I walked into the door. Nothing at all has changed since I was a child and that includes the furniture and the librarian. Another thing that has not changed at all is the heating and The air vents in the ceiling looked as aged as the books in the historical section. The air vents were covered with dirt and grime. The was barely blowing any chilly air at all. I could tell, because there was a long line of cobwebs from the air vent to the wall and it barely moved at all when the was running. It makes me actually worried to see the condition of the bookstore and I wish the town will do something to restore the building and its contents.
