It’s been almost a year since I shared my top 10 reasons why I love the library. And the more time I spend at the library, the more I like it! Here are five more reasons why I love the library.
5. By picking up CDs that BrownThumbPapa reserved, I got to learn more about his very eclectic taste in music. His latest selections?
How’s that for an unusual songlist?
4. You can go online, look at what’s new each month, and reserve it before it even hits the shelves. Yes, I had to wait a while for Good Eats: The Early Years, but I got to read it for free.
3. The events are great! The main library recently hosted Laura Numeroff, author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, for a reading of her latest book and a kids’ question and answer session.
2. Did I mention how cool the library staff is? They’re even on Facebook and Twitter. We found out about the Laura Numeroff party from the library’s Facebook page. And two staff members have written a book about the Alkali Flat area in Sacramento (our oldest residential neighborhood).

The Book Bulletin e-newsletter. I just signed up for several of these—here’s the description off their website.
As library staff and book-lovers ourselves, we know how much we appreciate book recommendations from trusted sources. That’s why we’ve developed the Book Bulletin – to help you find books you’ll enjoy. Subscribe to categories of interest and on a regular basis you’ll receive e-mail notification of new titles in those categories, as well as titles of interest that may be often overlooked.
I think I’ll be maxing out my reserve list at the library this summer. How about you?
