I did something shocking yesterday. I actually went to my local library. I can honestly say that this is the first time I'd been to a library since I moved to the States. I typically buy books instead of "checking them out" and do research on the net so I'd never really felt the need to visit a library.
Libraries are not how I remember them however (er, welcome to the year 2002). Instead of a card index telling you where to find books you now have all singing all dancing search engines running on lovely brand spanking new Dell's, this was an eye-opener for me
