I currently have 229 items on my For Later shelf at the library and 194 are books in some format. This is why I have to set a goal to read my own books. I also have once again maxed out my hold list. 🙄 Resistance is futile. #library #librarylove #sapl

Texreader Oooh! I didn‘t know SA library was online. I should have known. But haven‘t been to the library since kids were little. My new office is close to the downtown main branch. I‘ve been thinking of going and making sure I‘m good to go and start using the library again. 2w
Crazeedi Not too many....😉 2w
readordierachel The struggle is real! 2w

Suet624 Those two notices at the top of the screen are kind of scary. 2w
Bookzombie @Texreader Yes, this is the newer site. They also have an app too. You really should get a card. Even if you only used the digital services, it would be worth it. I‘m totally a library evangelist. 😁 2w
Bookzombie @Crazeedi LOL, just a few. 2w
Bookzombie @Suet624 We have about 29 branches so the temporary closure of one isn‘t too bad. They are doing some renovations and putting in a new HVAC system. The other is a response to MacMillan‘s new policy regarding ebook purchases by libraries. 2w
Texreader @Suet624 The work being done is at the branch I used back when I went to the library. It is an old old beautiful house (mansion) on beautiful grounds. I can imagine it needed the work. I hope to start visiting it again when the work is done. It has such lovely vibes there. 2w
Suet624 What is MacMillan‘s new policy? 2w
Suet624 @Texreader I love how different each library is. In Vermont we have two Carnegie libraries, beautifully built, and then we have some that are in what used to be churches and some in mansions. Each library very different from the next one. 2w
Bookzombie @Suet624 They have an embargo on library e-books because they think that libraries are affecting their sales. Libraries may only purchase 1 copy of a new ebook for 8 weeks. After the 8 weeks, libraries may purchase more copies. There are many libraries boycotting Macmillan. Here is one article: https://www.npr.org/2019/11/01/775150979/you-may-have-to-wait-to-borrow-a-new-e-... 2w
Suet624 Hmmm. Not sure what I think about this. 2w

I haven‘t been reading much in print lately as life has been interfering and I find myself vegging out to T.V. more (currently bingeing CSI:NY). Even so, I managed to listen to enough audiobooks to get a free book from my library‘s summer reading program. #free #librarylove #sapl #overthemoon #somanykingstoread

cathysaid I‘m right there with you. No ability to concentrate during downtime. Persevere 💕 7mo
Bookzombie @cathysaid That‘s exactly it. Thank you! You persevere too. 💗💗 7mo
Reggie Nice!!! That you got a book. I‘m in a slump myself right now. 7mo
Bookzombie @Reggie I‘m sorry you are in a slump. I‘m sure it will pass soon. I hope life is being good to you otherwise. 🤗 7mo

Yikes! I have EIGHT books ready for pickup at my library and it's Fiesta and I'll never finish all eight in time to avoid a fine! Oh, well. Fines are just my way to support #SAPL !

My friend and I went to go look at/be jealous of the new #SAPL branch and I ended up checking these out. Except The Grownup, I learned about all these books from Litsy. Oh and for any #SanAntonio residents out there, the Portraco branch is drool-worthy. It has an rfid self-checkout and they will soon have a 24/7 book kiosk that holds 600 titles. And the bathrooms have free pads/tampons. 💯 #libraryhaul #audiobooks
