Library Lovers Month Takes the National Spotlight Every February! Libraries are amazing community centers that offer a wide range of books and other resources for public consumption. The best part is that all you need to gain access to these resources is a library card, which is completely free of charge! So, if you haven't got a library card yet, it's high time you get one and start exploring the vast world of knowledge and information that awaits you at the library.

While visiting my grandmother in Florida, during Christmas vacation and sitting on Holmes Beach with a mesmerizing view of the ocean, I read a book titled "The Sound of Waves" by Yukio Mishima, which was published in 1954.  Mishima's birthday is on January 14, 1925.  If you can’t physically go to the ocean, I promise this book will take you there!

The reflections about their works are uniquely connected, and they offer an insightful perspective on various philosophical themes that are worth exploring.
