Mine to!

I have several books out right now on loan.

After I read one I try and take it back.

Sometimes I borrow music to, I love that.

I know a lot of people who borrow movies to...

Oh can understand on Mobility issues for real life.
Changes here is a new thing and needs practice.
I kept coming here so I could adjust without too much trouble.
Glad you are not giving up.

It seem I can request from the whole state too if the other ones are in the link.
I also download from the library ...the audio books. They are super nice. I can carry the books anywhere . Yes it is sad the Borders are closing.

I am sorry about your Borders! We have Barnes and Noble here, and I only go there if I want a book NOW. Otherwise I order from Amazon, or sometimes Barnes on Noble online, and get free shipping.

I use the library a LOT because my bookshelf is FULL and I try not to buy too many books. We have 3 libraries that interact together, and I think you can get them from any of them anytime. I love the online option, I just find a book, put it on hold, and when it's ready they email me and tell me to come pick it up. It's awesome.

You still got Barnes & Nobles ?? We did have one 3 cities away, but that closed.

Yes online is good. I use the library a lot now. I even download books from the library site.

This is a nice thing to do to.

Our Borders is closing too....I haven't bought many books lately....but we love to go in and browse, get a coffee, and hubby often gets a speciality magazine on woodworking....will miss it....We do have a Barnes and Noble close so that will be our go to store....

I am afraid I am part of the problem with book stores closing as I have and love, and use my kindle...so no need for an actually bookstore...(hangs head)....

We also have a wonderful library system....all of Hennepin County libraries are in the inter-library loan program....Found this and thought it was interesting'

• What does the Hennepin County Library system consist of?
The Hennepin County Library system includes 41 libraries across the county, more than 5 million books, CDs and DVDs in more than 40 world languages and 1,750 public computers and free wireless for customers.

It is a HUGE library system....

Will miss Borders
