    hi

    I love my local library, simply couldn't afford to buy the books i read, have borrowed a few of the cookery ones. Always end up taking out to many and end up renewing. Also borrow cd's and dvd's:)

    I would - my local library is pants though.

    Although it is closed for most of this month for major refurbishment works, so maybe it will be better soon :)

    Ugh I absolutely detest libraries. I'm really funny about books. Unless they're new or in like new condition I can't touch them. Hate the smell of books from the library.

    I've started using Read It, Swap It for my books but I keep knocking back swap requests cos the other persons books aren't in the right condition lol

    My library is really rubbish. I was looking for Psychology books back when I started my course, nothing really fancy and all I found were these lousy self-help books which were pretending to be about psychology, I had been a devout member of the library until that point. I might check out my uni library though, see if they've got anything.

    I love the library - I look even forward to going and changing my books - how sad is that! It would cost me a fortune to buy all the books I read. My library is not so hot on non-fiction though, they seem to have neglected the factual books since the internet has become popular.

    a by product of getting hooked on WW for me has been getting a real interest in cooking but I don't have many cook books so might have a nosey through my local library and see what I find, like the idea of ordering online I know my local library is part of a "chain" of library's in the region which share books so might find something in another and get it shipped to mine, woot, thanks for the idea! xxx

    I haven't bought any books for absolutely ages. I'm lucky that the libraries here are fantastic especially now that reservations are free. I can get any book transferred to my local branch within days at no cost. Okay some new paperbooks are heavily subscribed and you have to wait till you get them but they've recently introduced a 7-day loan on popular titles so the turnaround is quicker. Worth checking out slow cooking recipe books as well.

    As an aside, have you signed up to library elf? It's worth while checking if this works in your are. Register your card and you get emails warning you when books are about to be due back. No more overdue fines!
