If you haven’t heard, it’s National Library Week, so let’s all collectively cheer for libraries from our desks/couches. (I’m on the couch! Yes!) Ok? Thanks!
I thought in honor of this week, I’d thought I’ll list my reasons why I love libraries, other than the fact that they give me a job. And student loan debt, but I guess you can’t have one without the other.
Moving on, I love libraries because:
You can get almost anything you want for free or for very low cost. Books? Movies? CDs? Video games? Toys? E-readers? Expert reference help? The interweb? Book recommendations? Craft times? Events? Meeting authors? Prizes? Answers? The Hunger Games? Yes. All that and more.
It’s more than just a storage facility for items. If we felt the same way about all storage facilities for items, there’d be an American Walmart Association and people would go to school to be a Walmar-brarian. We’d have nostalgic, happy memories of going to Walmart on summer mornings to watch stockers stock. The library is a place for the community and a symbol of education and freedom.
It’s a haven for the jobless, the jobbed (?), the young, old, teenaged, rich, poor, everyone. It’s for all and the people who work there work for you. Sure, we have our own ideas, but we want to make you happy and provide you with the information you need.
It’s a community center. Here’s what happening at my library today:
