The "3 cups of tea" confusion gave me a good chuckle too - thank you. I have to admit, I like bookstores a lot less now that they smell like coffee (usually old, burnt coffee) instead of books.
On the other hand, the idea of a child not knowing about the library actually made me shudder a little. I'm a huge reader; I even read in the bath. My brother taught me to read before I started kindergarten, and I think I've had, and regularly used, a library card since then. Libraries are such wonderful places filled with knowledge, and controversies, and inspirations, and 'how tos', and dreams and ideas, and so much more. I can't imagine not having access to this resource.
