This Week’s Question

 How often do you visit your local library?

This week’s prompt submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.

…. 😭😭😭😭

I used to go to my local library at least once a week! I miss it so much!

Well… I suppose I should say I miss my old library. We’ve moved to a new town which means a new local library! Which is usually one of my first stops after moving. Honestly, when we moved to Boston, I was at our local library the first week we were there getting a library card.

Now, with all the precautions due to Covid, I haven’t even seen our new library, let alone been able to get a library card! I did sign up for an e-card so I can access their electronic collection, but I really miss the experience of browsing the stacks. I can do without eating in a restaurant again for the rest of my life. I don’t think I’ll do as well if the libraries stay closed 😩

Still, I would much rather everyone stay safe. I am thankfully that things like Overdrive and Libby are available so I can still borrow books, even if I don’t get the browsing experience to go with it.

Are you (or were you) a frequent visitor to your local library? How have you been faring with libraries being closed down? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
