How do you know someone is a good friend?
You know because they endure you totally geeking out over your new public library!
If you’ve been a follower of this blog for more than a couple months you know what a Public Library Nut I am. I do have a whole series of posts – The Library Stack – about my current library loans.
While I was visiting the Greater Denver Colorado Metro area March 20 to March 24 to find an apartment to rent, I checked out the local public library in the area where my new selected apartment resided.
My friend Michele endured me chatting with the library staff, getting a tour of the library and totally geeking out over a new 700 section to explore! She was extremely patient!
What I could not believe is the library allowed me to get my new library card before I actually moved there, I just had to give them my new address:
To me a library card is like gold!
Here is a little taste of my new library which is walking distance of my new apartment!
So much crafting book yumminess awaiting me at my new library!
They also had a cool section called “Lucky Day” where the latest releases of books and movies were available first come first serve. They cannot be renewed and these are copies that cannot be put on hold when they are in the “Lucky Day” section. While looking at the “Lucky Day” section I chatted with a library patron who was very excited about her lucky new release find!
So as I am wandering around my new neighborhood I can peek into the library whenever I am nearby and see if it is my “lucky day”!
Now some of you might be thinking: “wow, she has no life”. What can I say, ever since I was a preteen I have been in love with the library, it is a sanctuary!
I continue to spend my evenings packing but I made it through packing my books and magazines and now I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Last evening I worked on packing my kitchen and realized I had a pathological amount of spatulas. I did not realize I had some sort of spatula obsession. I did pare it down to just two. If I suddenly need more spatulas, I am sure they have more in Colorado!
