libraries and everything after

um
so i went to the library the other day, and actually got a library card (which I have not had since I was very young). I will probably do the same thing in the city sometime soon.
I forgot how much i liked libraries, and some of the things i hate about them.

anyone else a user? an abuser?

good call my man
columbia has the most fantastic library. i only started using it for pleasure reading after i graduated, but man oh man was it worth it. libraries are fantastic--it's like going to the bookstore, except free! and chances are that they have books you wouldn't expect. good books. occasionally rare books, in the better libraries. i loved going to columbia's library. it's freakin' fantastic. [also $30/mon. for non-students/staff/faculty etc] i need to get acquainted with berkeley's library after i head back left.

being an admitted bibliophile, i have a problem with libraries. One, i stay in them too long. Two, i steal from the like a vicious motherfucker.

yeah
my experinces with NY public were always mixed - they often had what i wanted, but it was a long wait to get to it. I am finding much the same with weschester, but at least I am saving some dough on books i don't really feel the need to own,just want to partake in.

I to am a bibliophle, although I don't steal from libraries.

i actually bought a small library program to assist in this, however - i have yet to put in the time to go through and enter all the books. If only i could barcode scan!

Re: heh
My husband has spent the better part of almost every evening for the past year putting our "library" into a small library program. He would probably love to be able to barcode scan.

The public library has some things I use (I've always had a library card since I was five years old - even when we lived in France), and what's nice in Westchester is that you can use any library in the county, even White Plains but you need to return White Plains books to White Plains. Having the use of a university library is much better if they'll allow outsiders to buy a card. I've never asked.

I broke down a couple of months ago and got a library card here. The libraries have a halfway acceptable english language section and lots of DVDs with original language options. Problem is, the card cost about $25/year and video/dvd/cd rentals have a minimal charge. Ah well, privilege comes at a cost, I guess.
