Musing Mondays (23 February)

I’m currently reading a chunkster of a book that is taking a long time to get going… Scott promises me that the ending is well worth it, but I keep getting distracted away from it by movies and the mindlessness of watching him play Fable II. Since I foresee a post on that book taking a while, I will entertain you in the meantime with this meme.

The Musing Mondays question this week is:

“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 have been pretty constantly at the library since becoming unemployed (and, with luck, will find employment at a library in the near future!), checking out piles of books and DVDs. I’m lucky because my library system is ginormous, so I can get pretty much any book or movie or TV show I can think of as long as I’m willing to wait for it to arrive from the far reaches. The branch library I usually go to also has three-week checkout periods with four online renewals allowed, so I don’t feel bad about stocking up on books!

Most things end up coming from holds I’ve placed (the library is like free Netflix!), so I end up going to the library at least once a week, usually twice, to pick them up and return everything I’m done with. I also usually browse the new releases and mystery sections before I get out of the library. If I bring Scott with me, we also end up looking through the movies, though the library’s own selection is pretty limited.

    I know what you mean about having a big library system. I grew up outside of Washington D.C. with a great library system. My wife’s first job transfer took us to a town with a very small library system. The librarians were great, but the selection wasn’t But, her company transferred us to Houston. Now, I belong to the county library and the city library. Between the two, they have pretty much any book I could want. Big library systems and their large collections are great!
