I’m new here to this book blogging so I thought I’d get into some tags here and there to a) get myself out there b) create more content and c) because it’s fun?
Here is the Library Lover’s Book Tag I found from nickimags @ The Secret Library Book Blog. I just found your blog today, and it’s so rad.
Also, it’s important to note, this tag may be cheating since I work in a library and am studying to become a librarian…but let’s get started anyway.
How often do you visit your local library?
Literally five days a week. BUT if I want to be particular and not cheat…I visit other libraries that I don’t work at about once every other week. Sometimes my library doesn’t have the book I want. Sometimes I want a change of scenery. Sometimes I just want to browse books without my coworkers staring me down.
Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you can read or are you someone who checks out the exact books you intend to read before they are due?
I always have my card maxed out with the amount I can check out. It’s gotten so bad that I use my fiancé’s card now.
How old were you when you got your first library card?
I was six. I remember it distinctly because I was in a super Egypt phase and I wanted to read everything I could get my hands on. The day my mom took me to get my own library card was monumental for me.
Do you go to your library for a particular book or do you check out anything that piques your interest?
I am such an impulse shopper, and this applies to my library card as much as it does to my credit card. I check out anything that remotely looks like something I might want to read or breathe near for the three weeks I’m allowed.
Do you only check out books or do you also get DVDs, audiobooks, etc.?
I’ll get DVDs. I don’t like audiobooks. I can’t focus when other people are trying to read to me.
From what section of the library do you check out most of your books?
I would say mostly the YA section (including graphic novels).
What is your favorite part of using your local library?
Well, it’s my career. I love every bit of it. I love that we get to supply entertainment and knowledge to our community. I love that it is a safe haven for people wanting to escape the real world for a bit. And I love that it is a place for families to thrive, learn, and get excited about reading.
