Let’s discuss libraries. I love my local library. I bragged about it at 100 Stars of Less. It’s amazing. Free books, movies and audiobooks? Yes, please.

I go through phases where I use it extensively for months, and then go months without stepping into it. Now that I am drowning in books, I haven’t been going as often. I still go to get movies for my son once a week. I have recently been using it for myself for only audiobooks.

I love all the features my library has both in person and online. I use the online catalog to find and place holds on all sorts of material. It makes it super easy to just dash in and grab materials as I am notified that they are waiting for me. I recently rediscovered the online branch with ebooks and mp3 audiobooks, so I have my phone loaded with books.

I am amazed at how few people use their local libraries. I am very happy there is a great library system in town. Do you use your local library?

  2. For many year the library was my sole resource for reading with a few exceptions. I have loved the library for years. Unfortunately it became too difficult for me to carry the books and not have to walk a long distance to get them. My family gave me an ereader that has been a life saver and the wonderful indie writers have provided a wonderful new arena for finding reasonably priced books. I have also found book blogging and love to enter giveaways that are so generously provided for us follower – this is fun and I always look forward to checking every day for something new!
