Feb. 12: I love…

February 12, 2010

… the library. Our library.

It’s Easy. Free. Nearby.

The weekly story time. The children’s area. The puzzles, crayons, and whirlygig toys.

The selection. The online account management. The movies, computers, and wi-fi.

Putting books on hold. Having them sent to my library. Getting notices via email when books are available to pick up. Or when they are due. Renewing our books online.

Requesting brand-spanking new books and having the library order them and put them on hold for me. (I’ve probably saved over $50 this past year by not buying these books myself. Plus, countless others will benefit from their availability at the local library.)

Visiting other libraries (like the beautiful Maplewood site).

The staff. The kids. The community.

Oh yeah. And the books.

We love the library!

    Oh yes! Does it make me a huge geek to admit that I have my library number memorized?
