Does Anyone Still Wear A Hat?

I myself have 12 hats, and each one represents a different personality. Why be just yourself?
-Author Margaret Atwood

Our library has a multipurpose room that is used for story hour, baby showers, free tax preparation in February, and meetings. Its walls are also used to display artwork and other things brought in by citizens of the county. This month we are presenting hats. These hats are the personal hats of a local woman who died this year. Her children were going though her things and found six plastic bins filled with women's hats. This was not that surprising to them since they knew she loved hats. They just did not know she had saved each one. The library is showing the contents of one of the bins. This turned out to be forty hats. If only they could talk.
