NY Library Card!

NY Library CardLast month, I got my NY Library card. This month, we’ll be reading Middlesex for our book club, so I went online and got the book from my local library. As it is in Seattle, everything is so easy (reserve it online, pick it up in person), not to mention environment-friendly, clutter-free and cost efficient. I just love it!

  1. I truly miss the Seattle Public Library. Though I use the NYPL all the time, there are no branch locations where I want to “hang out” the way I did in Seattle. I’ve also been shocked at the number of titles NYPL does not carry. Still, I appreciate libraries in general and am thankful that every New Yorker has the opportunity to read books, newspapers, and magazines without a fee.
