I live in a relatively small town and from my past experience of living in small towns I have found that small town libraries are not very good. This is so not the case for my local library...it is AWESOME! They have such a great selection of books, DVD's, CD's and audio books that it is hard not to find what I want. If they don't have it, they will do whatever they can to get it to you through Interlibrary Loan or by purchasing it for the library. I really want to read Anne Easter Smith's new book "Queen by Right" and my local library did not have it and no other library wanted to loan it out through ILL so my library just went ahead and purchased it! I also love how easy it is to use my library. I can sit at home and search their online catalog, request all the books I want and they will get them off the shelf for me and email me when they are ready to be picked up. I know that makes me kind of lazy but I don't always have time to run to the library and search for things so it is nice that they make the process so easy. The same goes for the ILL request process; it is all online and super easy to use.
I will stop babbling about how great my library is but what I want to know is, what do you think of your local library? Do you love it? Do you hate it?
