Why I love Wednesdays: April 13th

Why I love Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by the fun blog, Reflections of a Bookaholic. It's a mid-week meme focusing on something loved about books or bookish. I do a lot of memes already that are general questions, but some of these themes and prompts are a bit different so thought it looked fun!


Why I love...Libraries!

I have to admit I very rarely check a book out at the library. However, I still LOVE libraries. 

Easier to make a list to explain:

  • I love what they stand for and what they try to do for a community. 
  • I love the luxurious feel of large, magificient libraries. 
  • I love the cozy community sensation of smaller ones. 
  • I love the artwork in libraries that are classy, and I love the cheesy reading posters to promote reading adorning other ones. 
  • I love the seats and such established for comfort around libraries. 
  • I really love the teen and children sections with the posters, different displays and things to do, and set-ups. 
  • I love Librarians and a job focusing on books such as that.
  • I love Friends of the Library and the cool sales they promote.
  • I love the online sites for Libraries and how much you can get through them, such as free downloadables and resources.
  • I love how Library cards are free.
  • I love Libraries offering classes and such weekly to promote community hobbies, such as knitting.
  • I love that Libraries are weekly meeting groups for book clubs and groups.
  • I love the promotional bookmarks from libraries - awesome.

    My local small library is especially great and I want to get further involved in it. They had a Mother-daughter tea I would have loved to attend that I ended up missing because I didn't know about it in time.

    I have the luxury of having a few libraries to go to. I prefer the smaller, closer one.
