“Do you use your library for anything other than checking out books?”
I love going to the main library. There is always something going on. They have movies and lectures scheduled frequently. I look through the stacks because there are so many books in the big library. I sit and read where it’s quiet and others are like-minded. I have taken chess classes there, but my schedule doesn’t work with the days of the classes anymore.
I love taking public transportation there. There is never parking at the main library, and public transportation provides a show, usually.
They have a free impromptu show going on constantly with a changing cast – the homeless and general crazies who come in out of the cold and wind, and sometimes the heat. The bathroom, especially, is entertaining. Someone is always having a conversation there, usually with herself.
I love the used book sales. I have volunteered for the big one. I plan on volunteering again sometime. I just can’t commit to regular days or times.
I tend to use my local library to pick up holds. I look online for what I want and then request that it be sent to my local library. I still browse through the books, to see if there’s anything wonderful I am missing. I rarely leave empty handed.
