The Library

It's been ages since I last loaned books from the Central Library and I had to apply for a new card, a laminated, magenta coloured card. Fortunately, they had all the books I wanted when I rang up and I was in and out of there in 15 minutes.
To me, Central Libraries exude the same sense of foreboding as hospitals do. The feeling that the longer you stay there someone's precious time is being wasted, doesn't help either.
I prefer going to local libraries, the staff are always happy to see and service their customers. A visit to the GPs used to have the same cozy feel but now the General Practioners is just like a visit to the Central Library. It's becoming so that it's wiser to know exactly what you need before you enter which usually requires doing some research beforehand.

I got out all the books mentioned in the previous post. The same Jonathan Smith authored both The Learning Game and Summer in February and I'm looking forward to reading them.

Who knows, I might even blog up a review or two.
