Mine hasn't been used in so long, I'm not sure it's still good.
(I'm kidding. I know it's still good.)

Yes, and I use it often. Weekly.
Visiting a library is a great excuse to see a new neighborhood. I wandered down to the Beverly library last weekend, they have a different collection than the 2 libraries I usually go to.

I borrow most the books I read from friends, co-workers, family... they are my library... and usually they give great recommendations.

I got a Chicago library card this summer, after finding out you can get a reciprocal one with an Oak Park card. I decided to visit as many branches as I could during the summer and It was a great way to explore a slice of city life. Libraries can be the heart of a neighborhood. Check out my blog, Library Journeys.

Yes, but I have stop using it cause I tend to return the books late. Thus incurring fines. I am a bad library member.
