Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!Our library currently is running a survey to ask what we like and don't like about the service. Most of the time I am pretty happy with the service we get. We have a wide range of books, CDs, audiobooks, now ebooks and lots more. They generally are happy to buy books if they don't already have them or get rarer books from other library systems through interlibrary load.
The questionnaire did have me wondering though what would I change. In an ideal world I would like my branch to be open late more than once a week, I would like the audiobook and ebook collections to be more seamlessly integrated into the library catalogue as currently you can't see due dates for these items on your account summary in the same way that you can for other items. There were a few other things that were mentioned along the way.
How about you? How would you change your library service?
Here's what I got from my pretty good library service this week:
Persuasion (DVD) - I recently read Persuasion by Jane Austen so I thought I would watch an adaptation of it. I was hoping for a different version, but this is the one that the library has so this will have to do.
Kitty's War by Janet Butler - I started reading this a few weeks ago and then realised that I was going to have to return it.
Between the Lines by Tammara Webber - Reloot!
With All My Love by Patricia Scanlan - Another reloot!
Dreaming Out Loud by One Republic - I quite like the new One Republic song so I thought I would see what the library has in the way of their music. They only have this album which seems as good a place to start as any.
