6. Our Town

Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library.  The only entrance requirement is interest.”

– Lady Bird Johnson

Living in a walkable town is immensely satisfying.  Without a car or even a bike, folks can get their everyday needs met.  Each town has its gems – favorites – staples – that become an extension of one’s home.  Perhaps a favorite breakfast place serving pumpkin spice pancakes.  Or a home store that inspires imaginary redecorating (but very little real spending).  Or a clothing store with a good sale rack.  Or a park with a great slide.  The crown jewel though of any little town is – arguably – the library.  Proudly situated adjacent to Main Street, the library has evening hours and a wonderful selection of books.  It feels good to have a home in a town that feels like home.  Thanks to Jill from Homemade by Jill who shared the incredible idea of making a playmat for a child that captures a family’s special places in town.  Fisker’s offers additional tips on how to bring your town to life for your child!
