I've been meaning to say for a while how excited I am that Kenmore now has it's own new library.....it opened just before Christmas. I didn't get to see it until after Christmas and the joint was jumping.
I don't know about your library but our library has cheerful technology that "sings" when you borrow a book - a bit like those new fandangled washing machines that sing a little tune when the load is finished. The library was so busy the day I went all you could hear was the dinging of happy customers and their books being checked out.
There are all sorts of great spaces in the library particularly for young uns - (puts on old shaky voice) "Oh they're not like they were in my day...." ....well actually, I remember them being pretty fantastic in my day too.....
What do you remember about libraries in your youth? I remember listening to Elton John's Yellow Brick Road over and over again while my parents looked at books - it must have been on tape...and that would have been in a library in Canberra....I'm trying to remember which one it would have been - I think it might have been Kingston ....
Do you have a library near you? Do you like it? What do you like about it?
