A beautiful sight, a joyful noise

I heard the most joyful noise coming from a cozy corner of the Menlo Park Library's children's room:

A grandpa reading to his grandchild with such wonderful, lively expression! I am far too accustomed to seeing adults drag their children to the library, and then play with their cell phone apps while the kids are supposed to be dutifully reading. Adults like this grandpa are demonstrating the value & joy to be found in reading, AND they are building memories that will be treasured for 2 lifetimes.
