Living within a super tight budget has definitely been eased by MCPL’s continually expanding collections and access to WorldCat. I can acquire the newest books, audio selections, and DVDs. There are formats for any situation, and I always keep a wide variety in my personal MCPL collection. Would I like to listen to a CD while I’m driving around, doing my errands? Perhaps, I might take a book or the magazine I wanted to browse through to my dentist’s visit. So many choices!
Whenever I remember my small hometown library, I remember a lovely, two-story, Greek revival, white terra cotta, stone building built at the turn of the Twentieth Century. It was like going back in time, and it stirred the imagination. Until I got my driver’s license, I waited for my ride home after school at this fascinating building. The librarians were always willing to help me find anything I needed. Their suggestions led me to read books I would never have found on my own. They also seemed as happy as I was to find any material I was asking about.
I'm not a runner. It all seems rather boring and pointless to me. However, I do enjoy running sports like basketball or soccer. It might seem odd, but put some kind of ball in it, and running takes on a whole new meaning of excitement and entertainment. I wonder... could I actually enjoy running? The jury is still out trying to figure that one out.
I’ll admit it; I’m no kid. I don’t have kids. I do, however, LOVE kid’s movies! My husband and I recently saw Legend of the Guardians at the theater. We didn’t expect much from a cartoon about owls, but we figured it was as good a way as any to spend our Wednesday evening. By Thursday, I’d told all of my co-workers, everyone on Facebook, and even the checkout girl at the grocery store that they HAD to see the movie. So, you can imagine the thrill I got when I realized it’s based on a best-selling book series.
