I miss the library!

May 19th, 2007 at 01:19 am

If you have access to a library, I envy you. Our libraries have been closed for over a month now...and the proposed levy on this vote did not pass. So, we have no library...and it looks like it is a long ways off before we get one. All those books are just sitting in locked buildings, collecting dust and becoming endangered species.

We go to Barnes and Nobles and I browse...I have spent close to $100 on books for work and refernce in the past 6 weeks. Amazon saves me a little...but how I miss the sanctuary...and luxury of the library.

My job is still my dream job. I am cleaning out old files and figuring out ways to get many of the files scanned so that the paper goes bye-bye. I am having so much fun. My boss (CEO) kids that "I" really am the boss of the organization...and I say thats just as it should be!!! lol

I've had a busy week and am looking forward to a couple of days to catch up...but I also am looking forward to my work week next week too....lots of fun things to do!

My mom and I are going to try to hit a yard sale or two in the morning. Tomorrow night, a bbq with DH...and Sunday...laundry, groceries, and maybe a haircut.

back to the original topicc of this entry... I so miss the library. I daydream about spending my lunch hours browsing among those books. I sure wish it was an option.

    I'll think of you when I go to the library. I need to get used to a new branch now, in the town mom lives in. Bigger, lots more available. Same system however.

    I can't imagine not having a library as a resource. I think I truly would die if I couldn't read as much as I wanted. (and there is NO way I'm going to buy books when I can use them for free!)

    I just read yesterday on my library listserv that the levy had been voted down. I was really sorry to hear that.

    Our library is pretty tiny, but I would miss it too. I hope yours reopens soon.

    We are very blessed to have big lovely libraries here. I am still thinking of getting a job there.
    Would you believe our library is actually a "test library" where they will give you CURBSIDE service!! I mean I think it is groovey enough to be able to go online and request a book to be picked up at my conveinence, but now they are going to have curbside?? Crazy! They say it is for the elderly and moms with little kids mainly, but I would love to see this work! I would personally feel guilty using it! Tee hee!
