Everyone in my family knows I LOVE libraries. It's become a bit of a standing joke, when I meet my parents for lunch in town they always expect me to have a large bag of books to return, and when my hubby goes to football on Sunday he isn't suprised if there's a book to drop off on the way.

All through school I read above my age group and often borrowed teen books before I was a teen myself. Sometimes my mum had to borrow books for me on her card because at that time it was only 6 books in one borrowing session and I often wanted more or the books were not from the children's section of the library.

I have never lost my love of libraries and I still get a thrill when I enter through the library doors or realise it's mobile library day in our village. It's not just books you can borrow now, films, music, access a computer and the internet... I feel that libraries are an important part of our society, being able to borrow a book of knowledge or esacapism, on trust alone, is an advantage we should not take for granted.
Happy Reading and Borrowing!
