  • and they do far more than loan books. A library is often the heart of a community with the librarian being a valuable resource on where to find information as well as what's going on around town. Libraries are a great place to people-watch as well. In Finland, libraries have public internet access terminals. Seattle was the first city in the US to go fully digital with their card catalogue in 1990 or so. Libraries should be cherished.

    The first thing I do after mailing myself a letter at a new address is go down to the public library and get a card since I don't technically reside anywhere I don't have a library card and I don't move to anywhere that doesn't have a library. :)

      I know they have them at the Bangor Public Library, but now I'm curious as to just how ubiquitous that is in the US.

    • Best thing about Tasmania is/was its libraries. All the libraries in the state were part of the same one, hence you could happily get books from any of the libraries to the one most convenient to you. The catalogue has been electronic since the mid eighties (and you used to be able to telnet in to access it, place holds, etc.; nowadays there's a web interface).

      Quite nice really.
