Just returned from the Alameda Fremont library. This country is really fantastic. Every town has a reasonably good library. Fremont is a small town in north California with a population of about 220,000, but today I got books from there on Surdas, Mirabai, etc , which perhaps may not be available even in India anywhere. In big cities of U.S.A. of course there are much bigger libraries.
Apart from those two books, I have also borrowed books on the lives of Thomas Jefferson, Bolivar and Harper Lee ( who wrote the novel ' To Kill a Mocking Bird '). I also got books on the Second World War and the Cold War.
Now my stock for a week or so is with me.
