Library Haul 20-4-2019
Welcome to a brand-new Library #2 (2019) book haul~ I moved yesterday and today I had time to take a break from all the house stuff and take it easy. Visiting a library was on top of my list, and I was eager to visit my new Library #2. points to GIF, that was me at the library today
I first had to find the building, which was kinda hidden. I had expected the building to say library somewhere, but I didn’t see it (but maybe I missed it). It was in a building with several other businesses, so I didn’t notice it was the library as I walked past it. 😛 As soon as I found it, after I asked someone when I was just wandering aimlessly, and walked in I just loved the atmosphere of it. Very light, with colour splashes here and there. The entrance (the pumpkins under the glass floor) was gorgeous.
I decided to go for the biggest subscription they had. We have that gastlenen thing that I talked about… but it is really russian roulette on what kind of subscription you may get. In this library that gastlenen would mean I could only borrow 6 titles a year… and also would have to pay 55 cents per book. NOPE. There is also another subscription between this disaster and what I have, but that still meant you had to pay per book you borrow (20 cents). Which is just crazy. You already pay 43 euros then, and would have to pay an addition fee each time. So I just went with the highest one which includes no addition costs for books, and I can get as many books as I want. You heard that right bookworms, UNLIMITED BOOKS. What a delight! No more needing to worry when I have too many reservations and still want to browse!
I had tons of fun walking around the library, though I did get lost a few times as the layout is a bit confusing. The entrance hall? That is actually the second floor. To find the ground floor and the first floor you have to go downstairs… Which doesn’t make any sense to me (and also not to the woman helping me today).
After a few books and juggling them on my arms precariously, I saw someone with a small trolley (is that right word in English?). I asked him and he pointed me to the right direction. They have trolleys. OMG, I can grab more books this way! 😛
I got a nice mountain of books to read, and I definitely do need them. My normal books are still boxed/packed up and will be for a while. We are both too tired to put up the shelves.
Look at the bottom of the post (after the photograph of the books) for some pictures of the library. I was a bit too distracted by the books to make many, but I did manage to get a few.
NOTE: Due to me being ultra-tired, I will not add a booklist this time. I will be editing this post when I am a bit more alive.
Stats: 14 books. 5 non-fiction, 2 graphic novels, 7 fiction.
