Erin Pringle is the author The Floating Order, one of my favourite short fiction collections of 2010 (it was published in 2009 but I read it the following year). She also has one of the more interesting writers’ blogs out there on the interweb. This summer she is hosting a special reading series of original short essays about libraries and childhood, written by authors from the United States and elsewhere. The last few weeks of posts from Owen Egerton, Matthew C. Brennan and Jack Kaulfus are smart reflections on what libraries mean to us when we are young.

I was excited to be asked to contribute as the library of my childhood was particularly special, a mobile library that parked up in the playground of my primary school every couple of weeks or so. My piece, The Library That Delivered, is this week’s Summer Library Series post over on What She Might Think. Click through and enjoy.

What made the library of your childhood so special?
