Musing Mondays - Library Habits

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is a library habits meme…

This week we have a library meme courtesy of MizB:

Library Habits meme:

1) If you don't frequent your local library, why not?

I only go for the DVDs and audio books. I like reading my books on my own schedule, so I rarely borrow books. Sometimes, but not often.

2) If you do visit the library, how often do you go?

For DVDs, I go almost once or twice a week. For audio books, maybe once a month.

3) Do you have a favorite section that you always head to first, or do you just randomly peruse the shelves?

DVDS and audio books :)

4) How many books are you allowed to check out at one time? Do you take advantage of this?

I'm not sure how many books, but I can take out 10 DVDs and sometimes I do.

5) How long are you allowed to have the books checked out?

DVDs - 7 days. New books - 7 days. Others - 3 weeks.

If a book is on hold, you can't renew it which is why I don't usually take out books.

6) How many times are you allowed to renew your check-outs, if at all?

As long as there are no holds on the books, you can keep renewing them.

7) What do you love best about your particular library?

It's fairly new and pretty big.

8) What is one thing you wish your library did differently?

Let us keep new books and DVDs out a little longer.

9) Do you request your books via an online catalogue, or through the librarian at your branch?

I do it online.

10) Have you ever chosen a book on impulse (from the online catalogue OR the shelves) and had it turn out to be totally amazing? If so, what book was it, and why did you love it?

Sure. Usually through browsing the shelves. I can't think of anything in particular though.
