Musing Mondays - the library

Musing Mondays is hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the library…

How often do you visit the library? Do you have a scheduled library day/time, or do you go whenever? Do you go alone, or take people with you?

I try and get to the library at least once a week, if for no other reason than to have something for my Library Loot posts.

In all seriousness I do actually try and go once a week because I usually have something to return and I always like to check out what is new. I tend to go on Tuesdays because that is the night that everyone else in my house works late so I have some time to kill. My sister tends to go with me even though she usually just sits in the car despite my urging to go in.

Even though my library is really small with a somewhat limited selection they are great about getting books though inter-library loan for me and they have great events like book sales every once in a while. I am also very broke so it is great that they are willing to work with me so much because I really can't afford to be buying all the books I want to read, what with college loans to pay back and having very little income.

I'm broke too and the library is such a nice alternative than not being able to read those books I want for awhile!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love going to library, and I go every week because I have to volunteer and I have my study group at the library also, so yeah.

And just becuase its free books right?

I stay there alone, except when im at study group of course!

Yes, the cool thing is that with inter-library loans you could potentially get just about any book your heart desires...if only for the loan period of course.

I've been using the library more too since the economy went down the gurgler. I have fines at my local libraries but not at my uni libraries so I've been using those.

My libraries the same1 Very small, but very helpful at getting what I want. I couldn't read half what I do without them!

I think we're all appreciating the library more these days!

My library has the inter-library loan program too and it's wonderful. My library also has a book sale once a month, which is great.

Mary said...

I think many people are reminded these days why the library is such a great thing. Free books!!!

One reason I don't go to the library, it is tiny and only a few years old with not much to offer.

I go to the library every day-but that's because I work there!:) It makes me happy to see how many people love their library. And those that might not go because various reasons, it's small, the selection is poor, etc, try and ask your library about their ordering policy-a lot of times libraries will take suggestions on books. And if you have inter-library loan, it's a wonderful thing! Enjoy your library everyone!:)

I wish our library had sales once in a while. What a great way to pick up books and support the library.

The inter-library loan program is the best invention! Especially since I live in a small town.
