I suppose LIBRARY is going to be a popular Letter L for this group of AlphabeThursday bloggers. I grew up going to the PUBLIC LIBRARY every week with my mom. We would get books out to read at night. When I went off to college, I majored in LIBRARY TECHNOLOGY, then earned my Masters degree some years later in LIBRARY SCIENCE.
I have my PRIVATE LIBRARY at home, spread out on shelves in my house. There's gardening books and favorite historical fiction that I used to collect. I've got books that I've purchased for my book club, cookbooks (even though I don't cook), travel guide books (including atlases and countries I've visited), and of course a nice selection of art books and magazines.
I still use the PUBLIC LIBRARY to check out various titles that people recommend. I don't read as much as I used to, but still have a library card. One of my friends who works at the circulation desk showed me the new library card I'll get when mine expires next year; they're much prettier than the one I have now.
There's a RESEARCH LIBRARY that's part of the Museum's Special Collections, where I work. Just last weekend I checked out three books to help me in my upcoming Fantasy Faux Mail class; we needed small B&W images for transferring into our projects. The two books on the left are full of copyright free material (WooHoo) and the other book is about Native American animal tales, a favorite genre of mine.
As you can see, my life is surrounded by books and libraries. I love my work and enjoy my free time writing and reading, art journaling and postal art. I'm curious to see how many other people will chose Library for their Letter L! Come find out with me at Ms. Jenny's blog, ...off on my tangent...
