Today was a very slow morning for me. Felt like I was in a tank struggling to move. However, I forced myself out of the house and down to my local library to finally pick up a library card. I had one at the hight of the pandemic but it was a temp card and has since expired.
It’s been a while since I’ve had access to a good library and my head is swimming with all the things that I can check out. It’s a cliché for a reason, but libraries really are magical places. The problem is that we live in Late Stage Capitalism world and I forget that there are just free media warehouses just sitting in every neighborhood. And of course now, they have digital lending components as to be even more powerful.
Not really sure where I’m going with all this but to say this is a PSA for libraries: please don’t forget they’re out there.
