I’ve started borrowing from the library again. It’s been a while. I go there every week with my little charge but hadn’t thought to take books out for myself – silly me! I felt saavy using their electronic catalogue to find Geek Love by Katherine Dunn (excellent). In Kanata, where I grew up, the first library was in a portable. Sometimes you had to wait to get in because it was so small. My mum volunteered at the Kanata and Carp Pulic Libraries for years. She borrows, orders, reserves, and reads stacks of books every week.
