Can I say... that our small town KNOXVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY is really fairly decent??
I often read blogs. I have a cousin who recommends good books on her blog... she lives in a big city. Well - really more often then not our little library has the books she is recommending. Like Three Cups of Tea, they have it. Zookeeper's Wife, it's there.
And NOW -- on my favorite message board ever, someone recommends Wednesday Letters. I have not read it -- BUT I SOON WILL BE -- because it's on hold for me at the Knoxville Public Library. How COOL IS THAT!!??!! Speaking of being on hold. Did you know you can go to their web-site... find a book, place it on hold, they will find it for you, call you and you can come pick it up after you check it out. AND... if you are a slow reader... or life starts going in fast forward and you haven't even read the books you checked out two weeks ago, you can RE-NEW them on-line. There should be no reason for library fines. LOL I keep telling myself that as I pay my library fines. I'm a loon. It's a fantastic service, if you ask me.
Thank you Roslin Thompson, Director, and all your fellow booky friends at the Knoxville Public Library... you are doing a great job! Keep up the good work.
Come on Knoxville Friends -- give them a friendly shout out! °Ü° Let's hear it for the K.P.L.!
