We have a lovely library with great bit for children.Usually I let d dhave a good play with the toys and read her some books then go to adult serction.Trouble is dd never wants to leave the childrens bits so when I strap her back in wheelchair we get LOUD SCREECHING,so i have taken to doing library book pot luck which involves grabbing several of the nearest paperbacks off the display and checking them out as quickly as possible to stop dd assaulting the quiet of the library with her bawling.It has turned up some good,some suprising and some frankly dreadful fiction for my entertainment.
I wondered if I was the only loon to choose my reading material in this way!
Um, no. But my local library does a personal shopping service where if you don't have the time, due to work/children whatever or don't want to choose your own books, someone will do it for you and you just have to go in and pick them up. Maybe you could suggest it at your library. It's quite popular, although I haven't tried it myself since I love picking my own books.
Our library hasjust had a refit- all self scanning which is very techno- and has now got a massive "quick choice " section. I picked up 6 books last Saturday- decided I don't like 5 of them so will take them back later this morning. Like you heathen, I won't persevere just because I think I should- there are so many books out there to read!!
