BTT: Feb 21, Libraries

 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

How often do you visit a library? Do you go to borrow books? Do research? Check out the multi-media center? Hang out with the friendly and knowledgeable staff? Are you there out of love or out of need?

I'm a big supporter of my smaller library and the importance of libraries. I attend whatever events I can to support it, such as their yearly teas and such. Tomorrow I'm going to their yearly book fair to (hopefully if I find something - I'm sure I will!) to spend money again. Their goal is to get a new building. They seriously need it. I covered the library here in this post.

I'm a facebook friend of theres and keep up to date on whatever they're doing. I do not borrow books, though. I'm just not that kind of reader, I always have tons to read and the backlog is ridiculous. They have a small section of Friends of the library book sales that I do purchase books from when I visit.

Even though I don't borrow books there and am blessed to have a computer and internet connection, the value of the library for the public is amazing. Free videos, books, computer use, and other services for those in need.
