Is you library within walking distance? Do you go often and check out the book and/or movies?

Asked by NUNYA (3207points) December 16th, 2009

I go to the Library once a week. Wonder if anyone else does it as well! :-)

Haven’t been to the library in about a year. I use the internets.

Yes, the last time I went, was a week ago. About 3 times a month I go to the library.

I go when my parents visit, which is only 3 times a year. Usually we actually go to the main library which is a good 25–30 minutes away. If there was one closer to me, the closest one is 15–20 minutes away, I might go more often.

Well, I go to the library every now and then. Calling it “my local library” might not be so accurate because it’s the biggest library in the city, but I do like to go there sometimes.

Twice a week, on average. I love it. There are original Tiffany stained glass windows and comfortable chairs.

Yes, we go about every three weeks, that’s as long as you can keep the books checked out. Sometimes we go more often because our library has a really good video and cd collection too, but those can only be checked out for one week.

All the time. At least once per week. I read a lot, always have, and have always loved the library. I borrow DVD movies and CD music, too. And I don’t have a computer printer, I seldom need one and can print at the library for $0.15/page. There’s a wonderful library within walking distance of my place.

Sadly, with budget cuts, they have un-shelved items stacked everywhere. Union rules won’t allow volunteer groups to pick up the slack, so I’m a guerrilla librarian . I try to re-shelf 10 items for every one I borrow.

@gradyjones I know what you mean about the movies. I do that from time to time as well! We get to keep our books/videos for 6 weeks. Really small town though. Thanks!!! (((HUG)))

I go to the library at least once a week. I can check out material for 2 weeks. I usually don’t need 2 weeks to finish the books or watch the DVDs. When I get a call that a book I requested has arrived I go to pick it up….that’s why I visit my library at least once a week.

No, it’s about three or four miles away. I go over there frequently.

It’s pretty close, I go to it often. It’s pretty small though, and doesn’t have that many books, and no English books. :/

Walking distance from work…I was there 2 days ago, but I didn’t walk.

The nearest branch of my local public library is not within walking distance. I don’t go to the public library much, anymore. I spend more time in the med school library.

RubyReds's avatar

Last time I were in one was with my kid. Me, last time I went for a book for me, might be around 9 years back. I do whatever I want to on the internet and I rather buy a good book that I really want.

gailcalled's avatar

It’s 9˚ F and I am going out only to pick up mail and to go to our charming, magical little library.

Dr_Dredd's avatar

For fiction books, I actually prefer buying them at local used bookstores. It supports them (as opposed to the big chains), and I get to own the books.

Bobgardenguy's avatar

Mine is the county library about 10 miles west. Go about every 2 weeks to get new books. old or new
