Library Questions!

1. Do you go to your local library?
2. How often?
3. Do you borrow books or bring your own?
4. Where do you sit?
5. What do you do? (study/read/use computer/etc)
6. Do you like your local library?

I've heard a lot of controversy about what people think of their libraries, so I'd thought I'd ask all of you!

I like my library, but I feel awkward being out in the open haha. Maybe if I went there more often I'd feel differently!

Taja  (taozi) | 48 comments 1. I go sometimes, yes :)
2. How often? I have certain periods in a year where I go every other day to study, and during those times I often take breaks to read there as well. When it's not one of those weeks, I still visit sometimes, though very rarely.
3. Do you borrow books or bring your own? I borrow books sometimes but since the mother tounge here is Slovenian, they're not as well stocked in english books. I mean, they still have a lot of them but it's hard to find those exact ones that i want and it's hard to find new releases because we're behind on the novelties ... :\
4. Where do you sit? I sit in a special area for studying but not the quiet one. I always choose the one where you can also eat and where there's coffee and tea machines - because I only sit when I come to study. And when I come to study, I tend to stay long - hence, I need food :)
5. What do you do? (study/read/use computer/etc) I browse the shelves a lot :) Search for specific books, which takes a long time since we're not that well stocked :\ I also study as previously mentioned.
6. Do you like your local library? Its quite big and nice and we have a lot of different sections, so I generally do. But I dislike how behind on book trends we are (generally all over Slovenia) :\

Arielle Rae Aguilar | 55 comments Summary: I wont be able to live without them

1. & 2. Yes I go at LEAST 3 times a week
3. I borrow books, but since I'm always carrying a bag and my bag always has a book in it, then yes, I guess I do bring my own
4. I don't really sit. I browse around the bookshelves
5. Borrow books and pick up the books I requested
6. See summary

Libraries are like the plants which provide my oxygen. They provide the books that keeps me alive
(I'm a cheapskate and don't buy books when I could get them for free, or at a really cheap price... though that doesn't stop my house from bursting because of all the books in it, since I find a lot of ways to get more and more books)
I get actual panic attacks when i have less than 10 books out from the library at one time ><

P.s. I don't know what you mean by 'local' library, but I'm basing my answers on all the branches of our city's library (which is pretty HUGE compared from where I came from! Around 55 branches, since it's the country's most populated city, and I could request books from any of them. Yipee! :D)
