OK I went to the library earlier, as I mentioned. I have now officially gone through my entire book wish-list and looked up every single book. The ones that came up in the card catalog I have requested. I am #1 in the "hold queue" for most of them. Sadly, most of them look like they are lost and won't be coming in anytime soon. Still, though, my hope is that they will come in as fast as I can read them. Also, I like just having another something that has me out and about a little bit more. I enjoyed going out today and socializing with people (including a special man who very loudly asked how I was and wished me a wonderful day). I am pretty happy about all that.
I think that I may have been too harsh on our library than was deserved. Yes, it is very small and pales in comparison to the libraries that I never actually took advantage of in CT... but I have just learned that they work really hard to get books for people and have a crude-but-progressing website that you can make requests on. The ladies at the library acting like I was a returning friend when I paid my $2 in late fees on my one-year-overdue cookbooks and slipped off to fiction to look for something fun and new.
