A Crafter's Life, The Library Stack

New Library in My Life!

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 StackΒ – 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!


Postscript

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!

  1. You have a great new happy place to spend some time…yay!
    I was surprised that the library in Round Rock, Texas let me have a library card, even though I do not live there. I visit quite often, and stop by the library. Now, I have a card!

  2. Oh man, I don’t know which I love better…getting a new library card or getting to explore a new library. My head might just explode trying to decide! I’m super excited for you (on the move, not just the library…okay, mostly the library)!!

  3. You make me smile! My hometown has a FB page which recently showed pix of the town library’s renovation. It was so fun reading how special people felt it was (is) as they were growing up. It is a formal, dark wood space. Kind of like the library in the Music Man. I was always in awe when I entered. I remember my special nook. I was also chuckling when I read your post on keeping too much. I keep wondering if too many objects β€˜spark joy’ in me….can that be bad??? Only if one is moving….and we are! But just .8 mile away. I’ll work myself silly going back & forth…and ALL my spatulas are going except the one I burned, trimmed the tip and recently said β€˜no way’.

    1. Awww thanks and your comments made me smile πŸ˜€
      Yes I suffer from too much spark joy but I realize that is okay! Are you sure you want to part with the burned spatula?!?!! You could keep it as a memento of cooking adventures πŸ˜‰

      1. I don’t know where I would start to keep those cooking adventures! But I pride myself on the fact that I raised three healthy kids and I’ve never heard of anyone getting sick from my cooking. …yet. There are some tall tales about a few meals but all have walked away to talk about them.

  4. I had the same feeling when I checked our new library here in Florida…hubby and I visit the library at least once a week. We too have a lucky day section…I’m sure going forward you will have lots to share with those of us who treasure your amazing finds πŸ™‚

  5. I love a library, but now I purchase the books to keep! Mostly because we live in the country and it is 50 miles to the nearest one. Lucky Lady to be so close to one ☝️ when you move!

  6. Libraries are life! I’m *all about libraries,* so I hear and feel your excitement at the new card (hooray!). Browsing stacks is one of my favourite things to do – it makes me feel like I’m shopping, but in a store where everything is endless and free. I had an “oooh” moment just browsing the titles in your photos (I’m browsing vicariously with you!) πŸ˜† May the new card bring you many good reads, renewals, and happy browsing hours! ~from a fellow library geek

  7. I knew there would be a library close by….and now you have the magic card to take you away to fabulous worlds! I spy the latest Louise Penny on the “Lucky Day” shelf. There’s a good read.

  8. Ooooh, new library! And it’s a doozy… Look at all those craft books! I actually visited mine for the first time in ages last week, and was so good to be back. So I guess I’m a library geek too 😁 Enjoy browsing the stacks in your new home!
