Short Story: Geography Section
The geography section wasn’t a popular one. And due to its unpopularity, it usually got the short end of the stick during budget meetings. If not for her, their community library would have replaced their geography corner with more fiction long ago.
But she had found a kindred spirit. A small boy who sat along the forgotten aisles, head bowed and nose buried into the weathered pages.
At first, she thought the boy had wondered in by accident, but he came back, visit after visit, book after book.
So she touched up that little forgotten corner. A beanbag, nice and squashy for a little body. Better lighting, for ease of reading. Shifting the water jug nearby, for hydration.
And maybe it was because of the boy, or because more love was given to the geography section, others started approaching the forgotten corner. Whatever the reason, she was happy to see her favourite place receive the appreciated it deserved.
