Tell Me Something Tuesday #17Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings discussing a variety of topics from books to blogging and everything else! If you are interested, simply just post your own answer in your blog and join in the fun!
Do you support your local library and take advantage of all it has to offer?
Well, back in my small and isolated hometown (I used to live in a small tourist island before I moved out to continue my tertiary studies in the big city), the libraries were scarce with ancient and worn out books, some even dated back to the 60s! I used to visit the library when I was younger, but stopped going after I exhausted all of their story books and they don't seem to bring in new ones. So that somehow discouraged me from visiting the libraries and I seek for books elsewhere (and I happened to discover.. Netgalley!). I also preferred to buy new books instead of secondhand ones so I visited the book-stores more than I do with the library.
I guess old habits never die. After I moved out to the big city, I still haven't step foot into the local library (eventhough it is the national library, just imagine the amount of books they have!) except for the one in my university. Although I am an avid reader, but libraries are just not the place for me.
But I wouldn't mind if the library is like something out of Harry Potter. :P
