Book Blogger Hop - August 14th - August 20th: Pelopidas Died in 364 B.C.

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: How often do you visit your local library?

These days, not at all. Then again, I don't go much of anywhere these days. I haven't gone anywhere other than to purchase groceries or go for training runs for several months now. Sadly, given how badly mismanaged the response to the Coronavirus pandemic has been, I don't see this changing any time soon.

In more normal times, I generally visit my local library two or three times a year. One of those times is for the annual library book sale, and the others are usually for special events they are holding. I am lucky to be in a position where my book and information needs can be handled adequately at home, so I don't need to avail myself of the library's resources. Now that the littlest starship captain is three, I will likely end up going to the library more often when "normal life" returns to take her to activities there, but that's likely a ways off in the future at this point.

There was a time, not all that long ago, when my life was unsettled and my resources depleted such that the local library was very important to me, and I would go two or three times a week, because I needed to use their internet, and their book collection, and their other resources. I don't have to any more, so I don't, but I still appreciate that they are always there if they are needed.

  1. I haven't visited my local library for so long that my card has expired. I mainly read Indie authors and there aren't many to be found in libraries. ;-)
