A celebration, of sorts

Who: Elisabeth, open to anyone and everyone
Where: The American Library
When: July 4
Note: I am completely making up all "historical" information, so ... yeah. Don't take it too seriously ;)

In years past, July 4 had been a day of great celebration at the library. Decorations were put up, displays of Independence Day related books were set up, all in an attempt to preserve a little bit of American spirit for those away from home on their biggest patriotic holiday.

This year, things were very different. After canceling all plans last year, the library's leadership had decided that something should be done to try to boost the spirits of the people. So a small supply of fliers had been made up, announcing that the library would open one hour earlier and close one hour later than usual, as well as waive the need for subscriptions for the day.

On the morning of the fourth, Elisabeth arrived early to set up a few minimal displays with history books detailing the birth of America. She was just finishing up the last one when the doors opened and the first patrons wandered in. Greeting them with a smile, she helped them to the section they were looking for before taking her place behind the circulation desk, hoping they would be only the first of many.
