Library Lovers Book Tag

My garden is nearly done for the season, so instead of a Garden Chronicles post today I’m going to do a random book tag! Do you enjoy reading book tag posts? Personally, I like seeing the random books that people come up with in these and reading their answers to the tag questions, as it gives a bit of insight into the blogger as a person rather than just a book-recommending screen. I saw this tag on Tiny Navajo Reads. It looked like fun, and you already know how I feel about libraries, so I decided to consider myself tagged!

1. How often do you visit your local library?

I work at the library a town over from where I live. So technically I only visit my local library a handful of times a year, but I’m at my library nearly every day.

2. Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you know you can read or are you someone who only checks out the exact amount of books you intend on reading before they are due?

I’m somewhere in between. I tend to check out books in batches, and I usually intend to read all of them, but I don’t always end up getting through them all.

3. How old were you when you got your first library card?

I think I was about 6 or 7 – I know I was old enough to sign my name on it, and I think it was around first or second grade, but I’m not entirely certain. I think I was just starting to read bigger chapter books – which I got to earlier than most of my peers.


4. Do you go to your library looking for a particular book or do you check out anything that peaks your interest?

It depends on the day! My TBR list is usually my starting point, and I spend a lot of time browsing Goodreads and other bookish websites, which lead me to specific books. But (when social distancing isn’t a concern) I also spend a lot of time in the stacks just looking for something to catch my attention. I also sometimes see the books that customers check out and decide to reserve a copy for myself!

5. Do you use your library to check out just books or do you also check out DVDs, audiobooks etc.?

Books make up the majority of my check-outs, but I get a little of everything! I usually check out about one audiobook per month, a few DVDs every couple of weeks, and audio CDs from time to time. I also check out ebooks from OverDrive occasionally, especially when I’m working on a research project.

6. From what section of your library do you check out a majority of your books? (YA, middle grade, adult, nonfiction)

The majority of my books come from the general fiction section. I think I’ve checked out at least one book from every section in the last year though, except the foreign language section. I even hit up the children’s section from time to time for my nephews.


7. What is your favorite part of using your local library?

This is the only question that has made me pause before answering. It’s either knowing that I’m participating in an organization which is helping to strengthen my community, or the sheer joy of finding the right book at the right time – for free!

I tag everyone who has checked out a book from a library in the past month, and/or those who have not used the library in over a year. I would love to hear the thoughts of someone on either/both sides!

Until the next chapter,

  1. I love this book tag. I just did a couple this week, so will save this one for next month. I used to physically in my library a couple of times a week, but now with audiobooks and online checkouts, I use the library, but am not physcially there like I used to be.
