Love Your Library!

Do you love your library? I do. I talk about how I use my library to help me with my knitting.

Exploring my local library gives me a great chance to checkout books before I buy them. I browse my library and discover interesting books that I would never consider purchasing and really enjoy reading them.

I heard about the book Intertwined on a podcast or read about it in a blog. I got to look at it at my local library. Cool, huh? I probably only look at this book. I won't want to buy it.

I would have totally missed Amigurumi had I not browsed the New Book Area at the Main Library. Apparently it's pretty popular in parts of the world. Who knew? Not me.

Of course, I use my amazon wish list to keep track of knitting books I want to find out about. Knitting Saddle Style has been on my list for awhile. I'm glad my library got it. I need to look through the book again to determine if the information is some I want to have around for awhile.

I'm reading the Book 4 of the Spiderwick Chronicles to my friend Mia using Skype.

Third by Portishead. I'm actually listening to this right now as I type this. I don't have an opinion yet. Step Up 2, I saw a preview and the dancing looks good.

Learn & Play @ CML. All sorts of great information provided in activities to let you explore Web 2.0. This is really helpful if you want to know more. Care to join in the fun? All the cool people are doing it!

You can get Power Tools from the Columbus Metropolitan Library. I use these tools to make my searching the catalog easier!
