“ I love my libraries!”

published 28/08/2004

Free books, try new authors

You can't keep the stock, funding cuts, library fi...

Have you been into a public library recently? If so, what did you borrow? What services do you use? If not, you should try putting your head round the door to see what’s on offer. You might be pleasantly surprised. I base the observations below on my experiences as a holder of 4 library cards for...

Those of you who have read a few of my reviews will probably know I work in a library. Libraries are important to me ~ not just because they pay my wages but because I love books and also like to share this love with others. I don't claim to know everything about Library Services but I think...

She gripped her fathers hand tightly as they approached the building for the first time, slightly nervous at the sight of it with its wooden shutters and darkened windows. It wasn't a particularly large building, standing only one story high but to a small child it looked huge and unwelcoming...

“Free Books For All”

What a marvelous resource public libraries are, all those books that you can borrow for free! I've grown up with libraries as a big part of my life. My Mum is an avid reader, who goes through about 10 books a week so as long as I can remember Saturday mornings have involved trips round various...

In recent months I have been carrying out a fairly major piece of research work. I thought it would be useful to spend some time in a local library to help with this project. I currently live in Kirkham in Lancashire and work in nearby Preston, and moved here four years ago from the Midlands so I...

I have never been one for buying new books. I am a fairly quick reader and finish a longish novel in a few days (well, I used to before I discovered this site!) so I figure buying book after book, especially hard back ones, was a waste of money. I do confess to having bought a few from charity...

“Oh no, the big four oh”

Accessible to all

none

Having been stuck at 39 ops for so long and not finding anything I was sufficiently enamoured with, or hated enough to find worthy of an opinion, I was in despair. Wracked my brains, till the lightbulb flashed and I thought of my one true love. I love books. Have done for as long as I can...

Replacing people with computers

I am here to defend the local library. Is there any need for the local library? Yes, there definitely is. At every stage of my life so far, I have needed the library. I have loved books since childhood, and although many of you will laugh at this, a trip to the library as a small child was a...

I ought to declare my interest by mentioning that I started my career as a trainee in a public library before going to library school, and then became a full-time library assistant at a further education college. Now I work part-time, combining my job with that of an author and freelance...

“My Local Library”

published 25/06/2006

Good facilities

Mean staff

There are quite a few reviews of libraries in general on here, and nobody can say that free books aren't a good thing, but I thought I would review my local library since I am not happy with them at the moment. Haha. --Disclaimer-- Since it's in writers' corner, I'm trusting you'll take into the...

Re-written and updated ....... It’s not often that I can be heard singing the praises of my local council, but in one area they excel. We are very lucky in having one of most efficient and modern library departments I’ve come across. Not only do the main towns have big branch libraries, but also...

Hmmmmmm, not quite sure on how to do this but I would just like to write a review on using your local library services. I was a little surprised as to the area that it was in, but hey ho that is Ciao for you as they put it there supposedly! But anyway, back to the subject in mind. How do I use...

Libraries are great places as there are so much on offer and it is more than borrowing books. My little library as so much going on I am amazed that the different types of activiteis for all age groups. There is Baby Bounce and Rhyme Time for the babies and toddlers where they have a volunteer...

Since I have been on the internet I havent been reading many books. Since I used to borrow these books from the local library it means that my visits to the library have also stopped. Last week instead of passing the library I thought that I would pop in. What a change. Our local library is a...

“Check out your library!”

Huge variety of stock

Fines on overdue items

Having worked in a library I can tell you all about the great services available! Firstly you'll need to obtain a library card. These are free but you need to able to provide two forms of ID, one of which must hvae a photograph of you on it. Most libraries not only stock books but have videos...
