Genuinely didn't know what a library card is. He is 18. Sometimes I despair :'(
how many people have never been in a library, don't know how it works/what a card is/what to do at all.
and he shook his head like there was nothing wrong with that. grrr
Though I admit this may be unlikely.
since he seems quite proud of the fact he doesn't.
his mother is a judge too so he *ought* to be literate.
Well maybe he's just stuck up and thinks libraries are for the working class.
If you'd been the child of my aunt and uncle your need for a library would have been almost entirely negligable because they have so many books (an entire annex of their current house is devoted to them).
Not that they would consider anything negative about a library, nor do my cousins...But I doubt they need to visit the library very often if at all.
i value people who are interested in ideas and interesting stuff. i'm a total culture snob and i'm not particularly ashamed of it.
sunsets, beaches, European culture, arty films, pretentious music. LOL
how about black forest gateaux?
thought nurseries and nursing homes were the same things.
How can you make a service user more appealing for potential care service users?
Lots of toys and brightly decorated rooms.
On the nappy front, my sister is potty trained! SCORE! I am so happy..
all of my friends would say they read recreationally and would consider themselves well read. but none of them are members of the public libraries in manc and they all seem to find it a bit a weird that i go to the library pretty much every saturday afternoon.
why is this? it pisses me off.
i read SO many books.
it was amazing.
its a shame the government dont give them more money though, as lots of libraries stocks are out of date so i reckon thats what stops younger people using them- they assume they only do smelly old copies of catherine cookson books and stuff.
