The public library. It is so awesome it’s almost unbelievable. I won’t spend much time selling you on the reasons to visit a library. If you’re anything like me, you’re already well versed. If you’re not anything like me, you’re probably not reading my blog! I’ll just tell you my all-time favorite library feature: holds.
If you are a card-carrying member of the Arlington system, you can put something like 75 books on hold at once. Then they magically come from libraries throughout the system right to the library most convenient to you. I like to put bestselling books, DVDs, popular nonfiction, etc. on my list – books that aren’t available now. And then when they come available, it is like a present. You never know when they’re coming, but they are! Here’s George at Central – the biggest library in the Arlington system.

If you happen to have seen my pricing materials, you’ll know that I did my engagement photos at our library (at the time). The lovely Puck set up all manner of lights and things and snapped away. The also lovely people at Aurora Hills opened up a half-hour early just so we could clown around on the shelves without other patrons being around. It was a grand time. These is Puck’s photo:
You know what else I loved? Those glasses. Too bad I stepped on them and destroyed them beyond repair. On the plus side, I’m about 15 pounds lighter than I was there. Happy Monday, y’all.
