Well, it's the last day of National Library Week. I don't need any encouragement to use my local library. How about you?
I just love the library. I love the thrill of finding books. I love the thrill of carrying out bags of books. So much anticipation is involved. The books don't seem all that heavy on the way out. The return trip, however, the books seem very heavy. (I wonder why that is?!)
I love the library because it's one of the few places where it's okay to have little (if any) self control.
It doesn't really matter if I check out more than I can read. I don't feel judged if I return a book unread.
I feel comfortable trying out new (and new-to-me) authors, new genres. I feel comfortable taking chances at the library.
Why do you love the library?

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
