    I remember before the library was built. The long (North to South) WWII military building that housed the old Kearns Library. I remember sitting on the heat vent on the West side of a North room in that old library, as it was also the library used by students from Oquirrh Hills Elementary just to the North of it then. That's where stories from books were read out loud to students in the first few grades I was in at that school, until after 3rd grade, when students where I lived were transferred to David Gourley Elementary School a mile North and slightly West of where Oquirrh Hills Elementary School is. Then, it was the joys of hearing more stories from more books read out loud. But then, it was from the large and expressive mouth and in the voice of Mrs Elmer, who continued, for me, bringing out the magic from children's story books! On, where are the simple joys of childhood?
