I love you, oh Library, I love you I do
You bring me the books, I enjoy them too!
I find recommendations online from a friend
Reserve them, check out, renew, a Godsend!
Okay, so there’s why I’m not a poet. Anyway, I really love the Library. I find it amazing that I can see a book recommendation from a friend, search the book at my local library system, reserve it, walk in and out all in about 5 minutes, and boom! New book to read.
Here’s an example: with the political season underway, I decided to do some research on gun control. I know, it’s not a huge issue in the elections coming up, but I thought why not, I could stand to learn more! Boom, tons of books available instantly at my local library. How awesome is that?
Another example: a friend mentioned a steampunk book he really liked. I love that genre and thought, why not, I would love to read something steampunk. Local library had it. I reserved it and picked it up the next day!
So it seems to me that whether you’re using it for research or casual reading, your local library is the place to be. Do it!
Talk about something worth your tax dollars.
Support your local library, my friends!
