When we moved to Langdon almost 5 years ago, I knew I was going to need to give up my membership. This broke my heart because I was so used to working right across from the library and I could just pop over and grab or return books at noon. Luckily, whenever I am taking a course for my degree through Athabasca University (something I really need to get back at), I would qualify for an Alberta Library Card that would give me access again. Of course, I haven't taken a course since the girls were born so I've been without a library card of any sort for over two years now!
The tragedy of this is that in those two years - ebook lending has really taken off and most of the public libraries seem to have it. There are so many books out there that I would love to read, but don't really want to spend the money unless I know I like them. If I could have a public library card - I could access them and read to my hearts content that way!
Chestermere has a public library! Why it took me so long to google this is beyond me. Chestermere is a good sized town and it is in Rocky View County so of course any library there should be open to Langdon residents...and it is!!!! Yippeeee!!!
So, I downloaded the application and I am going to pop by the library on my way home from work tonight and get our family a lovely little membership so we can start enjoying the joys of a public library again.
|All it needs is my information filling the blanks!|
I can't wait to introduce my girlies to the children's section!
On a little aside note...being a member of Chestermere will also allow me to qualify for the Alberta Library Card again...so those noon hour trips won't ever need to end (of course I move to my new office on June 3rd, so I'll need to frequent a different branch than the central one I am so in love with)
