I love the library!

I always keep my old planners. They sort of serve as a diary for me later when I forget what was going on in my life. I was looking through the one from last year right after graduation before I moved up here. I noticed under my list to do when I moved to DC, “Get a library card” was written. Ha, I am such a nerd sometimes.

But it’s true: I love the library!

Growing up the library was the place where I could get anything I wanted–which was certainly not the case for any other store my parents took us to. It was so exciting to explore the long aisles of books and VHS tapes that I could take home and enjoy for the next few weeks.

Today not much has changed, except that my taste has matured from the Berenstain Bears and Ramona to Twilight and He’s Just Not That Into You.

  • I love reading your blog. It cracks me up when you write about odd things that I thought only I did. I keep my planners also. They really are my diary.
    And the library is fantastic. I have been so busy and haven’t checked anything out for a couple months, but once the fall hits, I will be sliding my card nonstop. :)

  • I love love love the library too! I’m actually going there after work to pick up three including Julie and Julia…which I’ve been waiting in the queue for weeks now!

    I’m also a big fan of the audio books. I have a 45 minute commute (both ways) everyday so the books help with the road rage. ha ha I even listened to last Harry Potter book.

    When I moved to North Carolina, I think I had my library card before my license! <- I used my lease as proof of residency!

  • I haven’t been to a library in this city unless is was for school…which means I haven’t been in one for over a year.

    I really should return and look for just interesting things to read, not things I had/have to read….

  • *raises hand* Huge library junkie, right here!

    I love finding books on just about anything!! When I need a magazine fix, I usually pop into the library to do a quick read, rather than buying one off the newsstand for $4!

  • I love the library too. Since I am married to a librarian, it makes it even better. If I see a book that I want and the library doesn’t have it, he can order it and I can check it out first. Plus, no late fees ever. Oh and he gets first crack at the new DVDs. :)

  • Love it!! My library is 1 mile from my place :) I have been using it to study but got a card right away when I moved nearby a year ago. It’s the best! (Mine also emails you 3 days before you book/DVD is due!)

  • I think libraries are a wonderful resource, and unfortunately one most of us have forgotten about. I don’t usually go to libraries and haven’t gone to the local one in years!
    I do hope to use the library more often when I move to a new city though.

  • I love it! I’m not afraid to say that I probably go every other day or so. At the moment, I have 15 books out. I read quickly and sometimes read two or three at once so I like to re-stock regularly. I also work 3 mins away from a huge public library so I sometimes go for a walk and have lunch in the gardens. Yep, that library has a couple of big gardens and an outdoor cafe! :)

  • I’m a library lover as well! Having not been there for years, we got reacquainted last year and are truly best friends again!

  • Cool blog!

    I love the library too.. I’m a big reader and until March, I always bought books brand new. When I started using the library, I discovered the great inter-library system that they have, their great website and just recently, they added a feature that we can put books on hold online too. I go twice a week (Tuesdays & Fridays) on my lunch hour to drop off and/or pick up.

  • Oh my goodness! I remember the good old days of Ramona! Hee hee. I too love the library. Haven’t seen much of it for a couple of years – uni keeps me too busy, but I look forward to getting back into reading after graduation :) my book list is a mile long, that is if I can still find it!
