Rediscovering the library

I hadn't been to the library in years but today I visited one of my local branches and discovered what I'd been missing. You can rent a movie...for FREE! You can get a book on tape to listen to during a workout or while gardening or doing some other task that you need to do (thank you Janet from knitting meetup for that suggestion). You can borrow a book you'd like to look at but shouldn't buy because it will be out of date in a few years. You can also borrow a book you've been thinking about buying but now you can see if it's really worth the limited book shelf space you have for knitting books.

This branch is a brand new building so it's spacious, well-lit, beautiful, and it even has a coffee shop.

Hooray for the library!


  1. my library system also does ordering online, you just have to go pick them up. Its fabulous, I can't tell you the last time I bought a book

  2. Janet will be so very pleased to hear about your library renaissance. I love your selections, too.

    Hope you two had fun at the wedding last weekend!
