Book Borrowing at its Best

Today I went to the local library in Shalimar. This is a volunteer run facility, not supported by tax money. The library thrift store which is located directly behind the library is their main source of funding. I am very excited about this small book borrowing building. It is not part of the library system so there is a small fee to join, but they have a great selection and the volunteers were so nice. I had some items to drop off at the thrift store, too. It is nice when people really appreciate you bringing in items for sale. They gave me a receipt and I looked around then headed back out. The library is so cute I had to snap a picture as I was leaving. It really has that small town feeling, which I really like!

I am so happy we have a library in town. There is no way I could afford to buy all the books I read!! Thrift stores are some of my favorite places to go too, have the coolest items sometimes.

I was at the New York Public Library yesterday signing my girls up for the summer reading program. I was impressed with the librarian and her enthusiasm. Given, the NYPL has much more funding than the place that you discovered, but it sounds like we've both found lovely people to work with.

Great post!
