Monday Musings

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the library…

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?

My Answer:

I'm always at the library. I mainly go to take out DVDs and audio books. I'm afraid I buy too many books and really should get my books from the library, but I don't. Probably because I can't read them fast enough to get them back before they are due. However, the library is how I discovered audio books. They have an excellent selection. They, also, have an excellent DVD section.

My library has an online site where I can put books, DVDs, and CDs on hold or sign up for a waiting list. It's great because once an item is returned or available, they email me and I go and pick them up.

I don't have any particular time when I go to the library. Whenever they have something in for me, I go get it. I'm there at least once a week. I usually go on my own.


  1. I feel like I don't utilize the DVD selection at my library enough. Maybe your post will remind me too when I go this week

  2. that cat looks evil...I'm scared.
    I can't say that I ever checked out the audio books at my library. maybe because I am never there. But I should!

  3. I am just considering giving audio books a go. I'm not sure how I feel about listening to a story though. But it can't hurt to try.

  4. The library is a great place for audiobooks!

  5. Erika Lynn - I've been amazed at the movies I've been able to get at the library. Recent releases that I've been wanting to see. I just have to put my name on the waiting list and it really doesn't take long to get them.

    Caite - The poor kitty is just tired :)

    Jo - I never thought I'd listen to audio books, but I tried them and love them. I only listen when I'm driving to and from work. It's a half hour drive each way for me. So, it's an hour of listening a day.

    Beth - It really is. I've become addicted to them. Like all books, some are better than others, though.

  6. I've tried audio books but I need new earphones. By the way love Kitty!!!

  7. I don't feel the need to use the library, it is a good resource for those who want to use it, but I don't feel bad for not using it.

  8. I completely forgot about the dvds! It's so awesome how they have a great collection now and not just weird, obscure and fuzzy VHDs like in the old days.

  9. My library has an online site too- which I visit about once a day lol.
