Library Love

23 March 2010

Hey Blog! Are you excited about your new library card?

Sure you can! Just visit here or here. Browse a bit, tell me what books you want, and I’ll pick them up for you.

Maybe our readers have suggestions? Blog and I are joining the Library-Loving Blog Challenge this week, so for everyone who leaves a comment below, we will donate $2.00 to our local libraries in Hamden and New Haven, Connecticut.

(Blog! We can talk about this privately…. later…)

How easy could it be? You comment, the libraries get a gift! If you don’t have a reading suggestion for Blog, “I love libraries” will do – until midnight, Monday, March 29.

    Oh Blog, you must use the reserve-your-books-online feature. It is my best friend. But I wonder what home address you gave them…

    • Jacqui, I reserve books online all the time (and hope that Blog will learn to do the same). In fact, I’m about to go out and pick up a book that my library is holding for me –

    “When people who can read and write start fighting on behalf of people who can’t, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something somewhere, and leave the doors open.”~Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times.

    One recommendation? Have you seen Mouse Guard, volume 1, the Fall of 1152? Also, go retro and read “Have Spacesuit, Will Travel” if you haven’t already. If you’ve never read 101 dalmations, you’re really missing out. Book is unbelievably amazing, and of course it’s better than the movie. Have you seen Shaun Tan’s new book? Or this one?
    Sorry. Couldn’t help myself. Too many good books.

  35. Very creative post! I love it!

  36. As a fellow Connecticut resident, I am spreading the library love! I will be donating to my hometown library, the Beardsley & Memorial Library in Winsted, CT. Thanks for doing this. I’m thrilled to see how many people are participating! Libraries really need our support now during this tough economic climate.

  37. Carrie Kerzner Says:

    Thank you, Deborah! What a wonderful idea and thanks for supporting your local libraries…from a libary loving librarian @ HPL!!

    Hey Blog,

    I just finished the audio book The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. The Cherry Hill library has a copy (now that I returned it). I’d recommend that and thanks for helping to support libraries.
