Library Lovers’ Day

LLD2015-AvatarForget Valentine’s Day, February 14th is Library Lovers’ Day in Australia!

So to mark the occasion (which internationally is a whole month), break out your book bags and head down to your local library!

It might be a surprise but libraries have managed to stay with the times, on your trip you might find yourself marveling at all the new and wonderful resources.You might find a 3D printer, free wifi, a collection of eBooks and eAudio books, a larger collection of free to use resources such as family history access and not to mention a even larger number of books.

In light of the day you might even find a ‘Blind Date’ book selection, whereby books are wrapped in brown paper and only small hints about the plot revealed. When you borrow your ‘date,’ you get a literary surprise when you get home.

As a qualified librarian myself, you may say that I am unreasonably bias in the matter, but libraries have been around for thousands of years and will continue to stick around for even longer. So what are you waiting for? Go show your local library a little love!
