Hey all, Dani here.
My blog backlog isn’t just a bunch of reviews. I actually have a few different tags to finish up as well. So once again, I have to thank Katie at Never Not Reading for tagging me in a fun little book tag. What I especially love about this one is that it has a focus on libraries. Considering that I do have a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, and of course being a bookworm, libraries are a big part of my life.
So let’s not waste any time, and I’ll just jump into the questions.
How often do you visit your local library?
Not nearly as often as I did when I was younger. I did go to the library once last month, but that was to use their access to Ancestry to do some genealogical work for my fiance. I don’t really use my library for book borrowing any more. There are so many books I have in my home library that I need to read. Not to mention all the galleys and ARCs I get as well. But I may have to put myself on a bit of a book buying restriction, so my library may just be seeing me a lot more frequently in the near future.
Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you can read or are you someone who checks out the exact amount of books you intend to read before they are due?
Well, I check out as many books as I should be able to read in the time before they are due. BUT, some days I end up not getting to read as much as I would like, which means that it sometimes seems like I check out more than I can read in that time.
How old were you when you got your first library card?
When I was little, the library rules were that you couldn’t have your own card until you were 5 years old. So I have had my first library card since then, so for 25 years now. But my library has changed their rules so that parents can get kids books out on their children’s cards; I think the age limit is 6 months or older now.
Do you go to your library for a particular book or do you check out anything that piques your interest?
A little bit of both, depending. Sometimes I’ll go there for a specific book, sometimes I’ll wander through both the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section and the YA section, and sometimes I’ll do a little bit of both.
Do you only check out books or do you also get DVDs, audiobooks, etc.?
Books and DVDs, though there was a little while when I just went online and borrowed e-books.
From what section of the library do you check out most of your books?
Sci-Fi/Fantasy and YA
What is your favorite part of using your local library?
The library was my happy place when I was growing up. I discovered so many wonderful stories because of being an avid user of the library. So even now when I don’t make frequent visits, I still have fond memories of all my time there. What is really great about using a library is being able to try out a book that you may or may not enjoy without having to go buy it at the store. Libraries are accessible to pretty much everyone, and I like that they make the books easy to access as well.
At this point I am supposed to tag others to do this book tag, but I don’t know who has or has not done it already, so if you would like to do this quick little set of questions then you are TAGGED!
Thanks for reading everyone, and I will be back soon with more bookish content.
