#ReadingMyLibrary Challenge Update: Week One

Tell us a little about your library (include a picture if you can!).”

I forgot about this!

I currently live in New York City so I have the New York Public Library system and its 87 branches at have helped me with my needs. When you were in elementary school, it was a rite of passage when they took you to the local public library branch and sign you up for your first library card.

I’m not saying the NYPL library system is not perfect. But with budget cuts and shortening of library hours, NYPL has endured all these years. It was very important, especially when I graduated from college. I graduated in 2009, after the economic crash, and valued the resources that were provided. It took me a long time to get a job so I didn’t have money to purchase books and go to the movies. But my library changed all that. I borrowed books at higher rate and “I’ll wait until the DVD comes out” takes a whole new meaning.

The two pictures above are pictures of Baychester Regional Branch, the one in my neighborhood, the Bronx.

This is the main branch of the New York Public Libray on West 42nd street and 5th ave.

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
