Do you have a local library?

Are you a member?

How up to date are they in terms of stock?

When did you last go?

Has it ever been under threat of closure?

I love our local library but we don't make it nearly often enough. We are rather small but can order pretty much anything--if it isn't in the county, we can request within the state so selection is good that way And, no, it hasn't been near flour as far as I know

Are you a member? I was when I was a kid but it's been inactive for so long I'll bet they erased me. My son is, he joined up on a school trip.

How up to date are they in terms of stock? They are pretty good but all the new books get taken out very quickly so you have to reserve them sometimes.

When did you last go? Last week with my son, he is into annuals and wanted to renew one and swap one.

Has it ever been under threat of closure? Yes, a few years ago. I signed a petition against it. I guess the petition worked! It's a very well used library, there are always people there when I go, so it would be such a shame to see it close.

Are you a member? Technically I think so.

They are pretty good, and if they don't have something you want they will order it for you.

When did you last go? It's been a long time since I actually went. My mother goes a few times a month so if I want something she gets it for me.

Has it ever been under threat of closure? Not that I know of.

I live 2 min away from the library by car. 5 by bike.
we go two to three times a week. I also volunteer at the twins school library and was very involved the library by our old house. We still visit the old one but more so during the summer.
I love libraries. my grandma is a librarian and it was/is what im going to school for eventually. I wanted to be a childrens librarian. not sure if that will happen though.

as for stock its very good. programs could use a lot more help with the one right next to me. thats rant for another time though.

I always quite fancied being a librarian or owning a book shop Bella. You'd never be bored!!

Yep

Yep

They actually get new books pretty often and if they don't have it but another local library does, you just request it.

When did you last go?
It's actually been awhile. I've been trying to clear off the books on my Kindle first.

Has it ever been under threat of closure?
Not that I know of. Our library is actually very popular. I can't imagine it closing down.

Do you have a local library? Yep, about 10mins walk from my house

Are you a member?Oh yes

How up to date are they in terms of stock? Its only a fairly small library, but they are always happy to request books that other local libraries in the area have in stock. (They are owned/ran by the local county council so all joined up which is really handy!)

When did you last go?Not sure, but definately before christmas, could even be as far back as September

Has it ever been under threat of closure?Not that I know of, but we've only lived here for 18months. There are some community rooms above the library that are used for various mummy/baby and childrens groups so I guess that helps increase visitors to the actual library
