Over at Weekly Geeks, this week's prompt is about libraries.
I have a mom who loves to read, so there were always books around the house. I recall going to the library and looking through the card catalog (would I be dating myself to admit that I miss those?). I loved having my own card. I'm sure that I went to the school library, but my childhood library memories involve the public library.
I now live in a larger town that has a library with several branches. I used to have the intention of visiting every branch, but that hasn't happened. I would guess that I have frequented 5-6 branches, though. I love the branch in my neighborhood because they know me and my children by name.
Since I've been blogging, I now visit the library about once every week and half. I frequent the library a lot more during the summer because I want to keep my kiddos reading. I'm cheap, so I rarely buy books. When I do, they tend to be more reference "how to" types that I typically purchase used or on clearance.
Thanks, Weekly Geeks, for the post idea!
