From the Boston Globe comes this True Confessions-type article by a "heavy library user". Apparently in some circles this is a bad thing? Not to us. This is what keeps us going, raises our circulation statistics, and makes our days interesting. We have so much available for our patrons--books, audios, videos, toys, music, and just plain old information. Go ahead--make use of us!
You might even call me a library addict. My husband, Allan, and I currently have 40-plus items checked out on the Newton Free Library account we share for convenience of tracking due dates. That's on the low end, since we recently made a large-scale return. More typically, we're up around 40 books, 20 CDs, and 6 DVDs.
But those numbers don't begin to display the depth of our library relationship. For starters, I've been using the electronic book reservation service since before there was Internet access. Back then, I had to dial directly into the library's computer system.
