Question

14th - 20th - How often do you visit your local library? 

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

Answer

Mmmm, maybe once every twenty years?  ☺️

I don’t go to libraries, we have a lovely local library which is bright and airy and full of glorious books but I have always ended up buying my own.  

It is stupid but I know I would read a book from the library and then go out and source my own copy.  Plus I would rack up libraries fines for days by forgetting to take back books.

How often do you visit the library?

  1. I'm at my library about once a week, and I'm so glad it's open again! I like reading a book first and then buying a copy if I really love it and want a copy for my own library.

  2. Hi there Heather! I haven't visited municipal library in 20 years! I run my own little library at school and I am very, very strict with the students who bring their books back late. I by quite a number of new books with all the fines they have to pay! LOL! Strangely enough, they don't really mind, because they know I am just buying new books for them.

    Have a good weekend, here's my Weekend Book Friends

  3. I'm the same, my home library is so big I don't have any need to go to the library😁

  4. I actually visit my library quite often! I realized just how much I used it during the months it was closed for quarantine, and I was forced to purchase all the books I wanted to read! At this point I probably visit my library every two weeks or so! My library isn't that big, but it's a part of a larger library system that's quite extensive, so even if my library doesn't have a particular book, chances are another library will and will send it over!

    1. Books do add up, that’s the great thing about the library! I’d save myself a fortune if I changed my ways.

  5. I cannot even think of the last time I visited the library. I think it was like 3 years ago to drop off books for Friends of the Library sale. I do use the eLibrary all the time though. I am an ebook reader, and I love that I don't have to stress about returning stuff.

    1. I’m mostly an ebook reader too, I’d love to be a library user but I love having my own library too much!

  6. I can not imagine a world where I would not visit the libraries.

    During normal summers my daughter and I visit various local libraries (we are in a major city and have several suburbs around as well) nearly every day for various programs in addition to finding books. This summer our library began doing curbside pick-up where you have to reserve a time to pick up your requests and so we were visiting once or twice a week, but must remain in the car until our books are brought out. Now that school has started, we will be back to once a week on the weekends.

    1. That sounds like you have an amazing library system available to you, it’s great they have adapted to the Covid-19 crisis and people can still have access to books.

  7. I never go. We have to pay for a book ticket, then a fee for the dvds, and another fee for audio cds membership, pay every time we order or reserve a book...it's cheaper and easier for me to just grab my own copy! Plus our library is so out of date for books you need to order everything you want to read, the horror section has two small shelves and the assistants tried to fine me twice for not returning books when I'd returned them and the dozy cows forgot to check them in before putting them back on the shelves!!! Our library is a disaster!!!

    1. Gah! That sounds like a disorganised library, I couldn’t be bothered with that one little bit!

  8. Before my kindle, I would go or my husband went and brought me home goodies. Now I only use it for ebooks & audiobooks.

    1. Kindles I’d imagine have changed the way a lot of people use books.

  9. I have been a member of three different libraries in my life but now it’s been 15 years at least that I’m not a member any more. The thing is that I want to read English books and there’s not a whole lot on offer here.

    1. I’d imagine English books are difficult to get a hold and it’s quicker just to buy them.

  10. I don't want local libraries to close but I'm not supporting them by visiting - they just don't stock my reading genre. :-(
