Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the library…
How often do you visit the library? Do you have a scheduled library day/time, or do you go whenever? Do you go alone, or take people with you?
I used to go to the library all the time years ago. Until I got a job that is and could afford to buy books and keep them. You see I like books and like the way they look in my bookcases and like to reread them whenever I feel like it.
Sing it with me: me me me me!
We have several libraries in our county and they are all open different hours, different days and then some days just because they have to close due to budget issues. They aren't open when I'm available to actually go. It is more convenient to go to a bookstore.
Last year, I took the time to take James to the Library and get library cards for both of us. It was time to teach the child about libraries and how they work. We walked around the library and watched the homeless guys on the internet, the kid with the cold sneeze and wipe his boogers on a book before putting it back on the shelf, and the old couple giving us dirty looks because James wasn't using his indoor voice. We haven't been back since.
I'd rather buy our books. Like Bluestocking, we are building our own library and the best part, you don't have to return them.
