Library in Use

Jennifer had a library book on hold for months, three or four. It was finally available. While she was in Salem. Could I pick it up for her? Certainly. As I drove home from Salem I decided to stop at our local branch. I wanted to check on the availability of a prescription. I didn’t want to go home and drive right by the library.

I thought, “I’ll use one of their computers.” It seems lots of other people had the same idea, the computers were taken. OK, I took the books out to the car. I got my laptop and brought it back into the library. There were open table spaces. Sat down, logged into the MultcoLibrary-Neighborhood WiFi. Boom, I’m online and able to find that Yes, the prescription was filled.

Yay! for the library. I had what I needed. Even better there was a milk crate of empty paper bags. Just what we needed for the kitchen garbage. Books, a connection to my email, a newspaper, and paper bags, this library provided quite a bit today.
