Library Week

btt button

Suggested by Barbara:

I saw that National Library week is coming up in April, and that led to some questions. How often do you use your public library and how do you use it? Has the coffeehouse/bookstore replaced the library? Did you go to the library as a child? Do you have any particular memories of the library? Do you like sleek, modern, active libraries or the older, darker, quiet, cozy libraries?

  23. Great question! I love, love, love the library and have written my response here:

    Oh, the public library. I have had a tumultuous relationship with my various public libraries as I’ve grown up. I suppose I should start from the beginning. But don’t worry—I won’t go through the entire sordid history…Read more

    “I don’t live in a small town, but our library gives you the sense that you are. I have a history at the library and people know me there. I can’t go anywhere else in my town and have that.

  31. My post is up right here. I had a lot to say!

  32. Looks like quite a few people have opinions about libraries! Here’s mine:

  38. I try to take my kids to the library once a month. It doesn’t seem like it is very often but we all enjoy it when we go. My latest romantic enjoyment from the library is titled, “Flying Into the Sun,” by Ginger Blymyer. A very inspiring romance, and life’s travel.

  39. I just found this one today and LOVE it! I have finally gotten my answers up. I’ll try to make my way around to everyone else. Have a great day!

    Well happy BTT (on Friday) and happy library month to all :)
    Check out my answers on my blog

  51. I use my library like crazy. I’m there several times a week.
    I have a bookshelf in my living room that holds nothing but library books. (If I don’t have 40+ out it means I just came from a long trip out of town).
    I buy books only after checking them out from the library ….

    We’d be paupers without our library!

  52. I use the library at least once a week for an ocassional DVD though I prefer to buy books and support the writer BUT there was a recent time when I did have a need FOR the library and they came through!

    Stephen King co-wrote a story with his son, Joe Hill which is available only through a webpage selling a collector’s anthology called He Is Legend. It’s a book of short story homages to Richard Matheson’s classic, DUEL
    (it’s slightly annoying because the only thing special ABOUT the book is that all the contributing authors have signed it, which is fine for the few collector’s out there who have the cash to buy such things, but it does the average King fan little good)

    King’s story is called THROTTLE and I love reading his stuff but couldn’t afford the 150 dollar book and THEY emailed me telling me there was no guarentee that the book would be printed as a paperback anytime soon- if ever.

    That left the option of waiting for King’s next short story collection, which may not be out until 2011…..OR seeing if the library would order a copy of the audio format of THROTTLE….which they were happy to do for me.

    It took a few weeks but they notified me that it was in and I listened to it. A thrilling little adventure about a group of bikers on their last ride (running from a murder) and their encounter with a crazy truck driver on a long, lonely desert road. There is also a “B” story threaded within the main story about parents and children as well.

    The story is just over an hour in length
    So, yeah- while I don’t use the library every week I am grateful that it’s there for this kind of need.

    Great subject by the way!

  53. Wow, Frank! How nice of your library to do that for you. :)
