Read-a-thon: Mini-Challenge by the Curious Reader

This mini-challenge is brought to us by the Curious Reader:

1. What is the name of your local library? What city is it located i

A: The North Fort Myers Library in North Fort Myers, FL.

2. How often do you go to the library? If you're a regular, do the staff know you

A: I've only gone a few times in the last 10 years, but plan on going more now. With this economy, the library is going to become a favorite family past time. I can check out books, and then only buy them if I wish to add them to my permanent collection.

3. Do you browse while you're there or just pick up items you have placed on reserve?

A: Yes, I browse. Sometimes I may already know what I want before I get there, and other times just want to browse what's available.

4. What is your favorite thing about your local library?

A: What a great way to get free books. And if I had kids I'd be there all the time. I think it's great for parents to take their kids to the library. I didn't have that as a kid.

My mom took us to the library every week when I was little -- I'd come home with a huge stack of books. It's something I really want to do with my kids, I agree with you that it's great.

Good luck with the Read-a-Thon!

Free books are definitely better than books you have to buy without knowing if you'll enjoy them. That may be one of my favorite things about libraries in general. I pretty much never buy books for myself anymore, unless I read it first as a library book.
Thanks for sharing!

I always think it's so insane that we can feed our reading habit for free thanks to libraries. :D
