Thing #53: Join the Library

Aside from the libraries at university, of which you are a member by default, I have not had membership to a library since I was about 8 years old.  It’s such a shame, isn’t it?  Well, that has all changed and for the bargain price of €2, I am now the proud owner of this:

Yes.  A library card.

Even though Galway Public Library, with its dismal selection of books, wasn’t all that I had envisaged, little could take away from my sense of productivity at checking another thing off my list!

I am interested to know how everyone else is getting on with their Day Zero Lists?  Did you know the website is now back up and running? So if you haven’t already written one, maybe now is the time- you can see my full list (and my progress) here.

€5 has been donated to The Ride to Conquer Cancer for the completion of this ‘thing’- read about it and donate online by clicking here.

Good for you for getting your library card and crossing something else off your list! Pity their selection of books is not so good. :(

I work at the library. So many cool things to do..other than reading (but that's great too) Movies, CD books. Learning new languages by having a library card, and downloading things to e-readers and audios, as well. A great place to meet interesting people.

And there's always the summer reading program, poetry slams, and even speed dating goes on at some libraries.

the library is my favorite! So happy you joined. I am seriously in the library twice a week.

I am a member of my library... but I am sad to say I hardly ever go in! I need to make more of an effort to read more! ha ha the library is at the top of my street, I have no excuse! :)

Love, vanilla

Whoa. Is that what a library card looks like?
I must have forgotten.
Seriously, though, the only library to which I have belonged is my university library. I think I belong to my city's library by default, but I don't have a card anymore.
Lame.
