Booking Through Thursday...Libraries

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 love my library.  Even though I have a toppling TBR stack at home, I still reserve books from my library.  I know many of the staff, but I don't hang out or spend lots of time there.  I love that I can reserve books online and walk in and pick them up.

What about you?

  1. I wish I can get there more often.


  2. It's nice to be able to reserve books online and then drop in to grab them.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I use mine to request books online and stop by to pick them up...and sometimes walk out with extras.

    I like that I can read some books without having to buy them...my shelves are already overloaded.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. i also reserve books and DVDs online! i am one of those annoying patrons :)

  5. I love our library's reserve system. The only time it's a problem is when I have a bunch of holds and they all come in at once. Then I don't know what to read first. ;)

  6. I don't use the library as much as I used to, especially since I lost my ability to drive. When someone does take me, I usually am just picking up a requested book. Most of my 'peeps' are non-readers and they don't enjoy going to the library and I don't like to take up alot of their time, so I just pick up and go.

  7. I LOVE our library! I've been going to the same one since I was in elementary school so it's a very familiar place.

  8. I used to go to the library all the time but hardly ever go there now.

  9. Online book reservations make things easier.

  10. I reserve books online and borrow e-books. I think I might go to the library on Saturday. I miss it. :)

  11. My former library kind of sucked but guess what? The new library isn't much better. However, we're close to a big city and I need to see if I can get a card for the county library system. There should be several libraries to choose from and hopefully, that will help!
