Kerchunk

I went to the library today to get some books for Zack, and as I stood there with my stack of over-sized picture books, remembered my days as a kid and how much I loooooved the library.


You know what I miss?


The heavy KERCHUNK when the librarian slid the card into the machine. A very satisfying sound. Slide the paper library card with the little metal plate in and start firing away, one check-out slip at a time.


The beep of a scanner just isn't the same.

  1. I miss the check-out cards in the back of each book -- they'd help me remember when my books were due AND made excellent bookmarks.

  2. My mom used to keep them in a pile on the fireplace mantel so she'd know if we lost one.
