When I stopped thinking,Mom was saying,"Sweetheart,we don’t have a tent."
"We don’t need one!"Dad said happily. "We’ll take all the seats out of the van(客货车）when we get to the park and put in an air bed."

The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world.On Monday,June 25,hundreds of people gathered outside the Library of Congress in Washington DC to celebrate public libraries.For more than a hundred years,libraries have played an important role in keeping Americans informed(被通知）and educated.But how are these buildings that are filled with books changing with the times?You may be surprised to find out.
Benjamin Franklin set up America’s first public library in 1731 in Philadelphia,Pennsylvania.But the public libraries made great progress in the late 1800s.Businessman,Andrew Carnegie,offered millions of dollars to help build free public libraries across the country.Between 1886 and 1919,Carnegie’s money helped build 1,679 new libraries ! Carnegie believed in the opportunities that libraries could offer Americans young and old.He knew that the more libraries there were,the more people would have a chance to read books."There are now more public libraries than McDonald’s in the United States,"said Clara Hayden,who worked at a free library.
The United States is home to 9,225 public libraries.Today, libraries continue to change and grow.In seven out of ten libraries,people can use the computer and get online for free.This helps many people who cannot get online at home.
Libraries are also teaching children how to read and have fun at the same time.One new program called Read!Build!Play!combines reading time with playtime.As children listen to a book being read aloud,they use pieces of Lego to build images(画画）according to the story. "Today’s libraries are always looking for creative programs to bring people into the library,"Lego’s Michael McNally told a newspaper.
Benjamin Franklin once said,"The doors of wisdom(智慧）are never shut."As long as the doors of public libraries are open,his words are most certainly true!
