Booking Through Thursday: Going to the Library
February 21, 2013 § 6 Comments
How often do you visit a library? Do you go to borrow books? Do research? Check out the multi-media center? Hang out with the friendly and knowledgeable staff? Are you there out of love or out of need?
I’m definitely a loyal patron of my town’s public libraries. I don’t go as often as I could, but when I do go, I’m generally taking out 8-12 books at once, so there’s no doubt I have plenty of reading material at any one time. I actually don’t use the library for anything other than finding books to read. I do use my school’s library for research, but most of it is done using the online databases, so that doesn’t really count. Also, I could borrow movies and music, but between netflix and the like, I just generally don’t take advantage of that part of the libraries offerings.
All in all, I just love to go to the library to check out books. I can spend hours browsing the shelves and commonly do.
How about you guys… Do you visit your local library? What for?
