I moved a while back (actually, I wrote this post so long ago, it's more like a WHILE while back). I am learning to love this town (and I say it that way, not because I didn't like it, but because I'm used to a much bigger city), but I get frustrated sometimes when I'm trying to shop or eat or chill out. Why?
My new town doesn't have a Chicken Express.
It doesn't have a Borders.
It doesn't have a Half Price Books.
It doesn't have a QT.
It doesn't have an Ulta...or a Sephora. (*collective gasp*)
But it does have a library. In my former town, for residents outside the city limits (I lived "in the county"), library cards are insanely expensive, and I believe you also have to pay by the book. Umm...no, thanks. I'll buy my own.
Now, I get to go to the library. Can you believe it? I got to do that during my summers of interning during college, and it was so much fun! The library wasn't even that great, but I read like crazy and for free.
Don't take your local library for granted. Take advantage of the opportunity and support them whenever you can.
Do you love your library? How often do you go?
