How often do you use the Public Library?
« on: June 16, 2010, 08:43:55 am »
My laptop has crashed and a friend is fixing it for me.  Until then, I am using the computer at the library.  I also like to read, so I am at the library at least once a day.  How often do you use the Library in your town?

Hardly ever. I don't have much time to read. My daughter has a library card and her sitter takes her at least once a week to get new books though.

I'm in there at least every two weeks...I try to read a book every two days.  I can go more often at times if I'm working hard at researching something.  I LOVE the library  :thumbsup:

I never go now... with the internet it, I find it useless (for what I do).
I support it and think it so valuable.

I rarely go to the library. But just like you, when my computer was down, I used to go almost every day. However I think it is a essential element to education in this country. I would really hate to see the library disappear, due to the computer age.
BUT IT MIGHT HAPPEN.

I visit the local library about 3 times a month.  My father is elderly and not well and he loves to listen to the playaways ..... a book recorded on a small device that looks like an mp3 player ... very cool and my daddy loves them so I get those for him and sometimes pick up a movie or cookbook for myself.

5 years ago was the last time I was in one. Kind of sad. I miss the smell of opening new books. Checking the back of the book for the card to see who checked it out previously before me.

I go to the library, but not that often. When I do go I take my laptop and books to do school assignments, and to see what books are available for me to read. I enjoy going to the library because it is quiet and there is no one who can disturb you.

I go to the library at least once a week. I love to read and I don't know what I would do without our public library. I started a data base of books I have read about 3 years ago, and since then I have read over 1000 books. I couldn't afford to support my habit! A friend once told me "Thank goodness for the library, else you would be out knocking over liquor stores to support your habit!" LOL Love the library!!

I only go every now and then to donate old books.  I don't even have a card anymore.

I don't read books much, so I usually just buy them.

in college a few years ago, i lived right down the street
from a quaint public library and i was there atleast once
a week. they had a 10 cent bin with new books every
week and i found some awesome stuff in it! i miss it...

since i've moved, i've not even bothered going to the
library. i've been meaning to though. i love free movie
and cd rentals, so i'll probably grab a new library card
soon...

When I was in between computers I was there just about everyday (I'm only slightly addicted to facebook).  Now I'd say I'm in there roughly once a week simply because I read so much.
