My Bad! Apparently I forgot I was tagged in this one???
I was tagged by Jillian @ The Bookish Butterfly in JULY for this award and then immediately forgot about it???
And I definitely saw that I was tagged because I liked her post.
Shame on me, I’m sorry Jillian.
Better late than never though, right?

1. How often do you visit your local library?
Sometimes I can visit a library up to 4 times a week. At least in the last year, I definitely have!
So far this year I have only visited the library 3 times I think.
Once to pick up a hold, only to realise I went to the wrong library and borrowed two books I wasn’t meant to be borrowing, the second time to actually pick up the book I had on hold and the third time to return a book.
2. Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you can read or are you someone who checks out the exact amount of books you intend to read before they are due?
I will check out more books than I have time to read and then will stress myself the fuck out in order to read them all before they’re due. I do lean on the ability to extend loans though.
But this year I’m trying to wrangle myself so I can read the books I already own.
3. How old were you when you got your first library card?
I couldn’t tell you.
I’ve got no fucking clue!
I can tell you the last time I got a library card though!
It was a couple of months ago after I left my purse behind at the petrol station.
I replaced only the most important cards (library, bank cards) because I had a feeling my purse would turn up and about a week or so later I got a letter saying it was handed in at the shopping centre near the petrol station with everything still in it!
I kind of wish I hadn’t replaced my library card though because I got the replacement card from a different library and it’s not as pretty as my last one.
4. Do you go to your library for a particular book or do you check out anything that piques your interest?
I usually go for a particular book that I have on hold and then will borrow far more books than I should because they catch my eye. So both.
5. Do you only check out books or do you also get DVDs, audiobooks, etc.?
I’ve recently borrowed some DVDs as well but it’s usually just physical books as well as graphic novels.
6. From what section of the library do you check out the most of your books?
YA and Graphic Novels.
But recently I have visited the cookbook section a lot!
7. What is your favourite part of using your local library?
I love the one closest to me because it’s what I’ve dubbed the “Gay af library“ because usually when I’m looking for an LGBTQIAP+ book it’ll have it. It was one of the main items in the positive column for the house I just moved into when we were looking.
Mostly I love libraries because I’m poor af most of the time and it’s a great resource!
