I used to be a very avid library patron. I had tons of books on hold and I constantly had new ones at home. Some library systems are great. The Anne Arundel County Public Library System is one of the best. They always had every single book I wanted (even if I had to go on a waiting list here or there). The San Diego Library is not that bad, either. Still, we aren't huge patrons of it. My husband loves e-books, too, and loves to buy reference books instead of checking them out. And of course, we made a little boy who feels the same way about books - he likes to buy them instead of borrowing them. Still, here's a few pictures of our visit to the wonderful downtown library:
I checked out a couple of magazines on homeschooling, and my son checked out a couple of books about Braille (a topic he is currently obsessed). We walked around the gorgeous, three floor building and then left.
It is definitely worth checking out.
