Day 623

I love books, but the public library bores me shitless. No seriously.  If I am at all constipated then a trip down to the local library will set me straight, coz the moment I start walking down those aisles with my head on an angle trying to read the titles my bowels wake up and I instantlly need a toilet run.  Same thing happens at the DVD store.

But not anymore!!  Our local town centre recently opened their new public library and I'm hooked! It's big and spacious. 3,100 square feet and over 70,000 books, DVDs, CDs, magazines. It is surrounded by full length glass windows. There is a quiet room (all glass) sitting like the cone of silence in the middle of the room.  There is a soon-to-be-opened coffee shop inside with magazines and newspapers to read.  There are lounges, and beanbags and poofs ... um .... ottomans.  There are touch screen computers to help you find stuff and a self service check out. And best of all the books are on open shelves with books on display for easy picking rather than having to have a hinge in your neck to read the titles.  It's heaven!

I'm heading there with the kids right after school today.  It no longer triggers a bowel movement so it looks like I'm going to have to invest in some Metamucil ....
