This week for Tell Me Something Tuesday we are share our LOVE for our library.
[su_quote cite=”How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning”]How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and Ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise;
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith;
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.[/su_quote]
I’m a BIG FAN of my library, well any library. The library is not just a place to hang out, it’s a great place to discover new authors, new places, and find new adventures. Each library is different, but each has a verity of resources for it’s library patrons.
What I Love About Libraries:
Free: Most libraries are FREE, but some my require a fee. Just ask your library.
Items: The library has a great selection of books, whither they are physical or online. You can also get CD’s, Movies, Audio Book CD’s, Physical Books, eBooks, Manga, digital Audiobooks for download, and more. The selection is endless….
Apps: The library has many great apps (Libby, OverDrive, and Hoopla) you can use to download digital items; like eBooks, Audiobooks, Movies, etc….
Resources: Besides physical and digital books some libraries offer free internet, use of computers, external hard drives, 3D prints, and more.

Let me introduce you to my home away from home. My second love next to my family. Meet my library; Millbrae San Mateo County.
Last, as a way to show my love for libraries I host the Library Love Challenge each year. Also, each month I do a wrap-up post featuring all the great items I picked up from my library and how much money $$ I’ve saved by using my library to check out books, movies, audiobooks, and more.
