I am a librarian- how have I not done this tag before?? I was inspired by the brilliant Rachel of Life of a Female Bibliophile, who in turn was inspired by BookStackAmber (whose site I got the header picture from).
How often do you visit your local library?
All the time! Of course, I work at a library…
Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you know you can read or are you someone who only checks out the exact amount of books you intend on reading before they are due?
I typically have several books going at once- a graphic novel, an audio book for my work commute, and a print book. As for due dates, that’s what renewing is for!
How old were you when you got your first library card?
My mom brought me to library regularly as a child, I don’t remember not having a card, but I would assume kindergarten.
Do you go to your library looking for a particular book or do you check out anything that peaks your interest?
Both- I love to browse, so typically it’s some titles I had in mind but also ones that capture my interest at the moment.
Do you use your library to check out just books or do you also check out dvds, audiobooks etc.?
I check out everything! Books, movies, music, audiobooks, hotspots, and magazines. I like physical books the best, but I also use Hoopla for a few online books.
From what section of your library do you check out a majority of your books? ( YA, middle grade, adult, nonfiction.)
This blog proves I read a lot of graphic novels, but I also read a mix of YA, historical fiction, thrillers and non-fiction. I’m pretty evenly divided with my book genres ( I post all my reviews on Goodreads, but mostly graphic novels are on this blog).
What is your favorite part of using your local library?
I adore reading, but truth be told, I don’t own a great many books (but still more than the average person). I buy my children a lot of books, but I get a majority of my reads for free from the library. When I was growing up libraries didn’t have the programming they do nowadays, so I enjoy creating programs for the teens I work with, attending adult programs myself and when my children were younger taking them to story time.
I am not tagging anyone in particular, although I’d like to see how my writing partner Kathleen would respond. So, please go ahead if you are interested, and share your library love!
