Since June 1st, we’re officially library-less. Our beloved neighbourhood branch has closed down for a year of renovation. If there isn’t too much delay, they will be open again in April next year. It seems like an eternity! And it’s not even a fortnight since they closed. How will we survive?
Luckily for them, the staff are relocated to other branches while the project is underway. We haven’t found another branch yet, that would suit our schedule and needs (not too far and a large choice of books, music and children’s books). We went cold turkey (i.e. brought back all our books) before the holidays, so for the moment being, we don’t quite feel the strain… yet.
But I’m checking Bookmooch lists like a famished dog… It will be a long year indeed. The only good thing, I have no excuse not to tackle that TBR pile, like Emily urged us to! (unless I just give up and buy plenty of new ones?)
