"Free Books Sunday"
OMG. BG and I went swimming with the kids this morning, then back to her place for lunch (which her husband had made for us) and from there to the Brighton Library.
Lately, BG and I have been "library hopping." Last week we went to Northville's. Wow. Northville is the kind of swanky town with pavers in their main streets. And gazebos. (not in the main streets) Their library is not only hu-normous, it's also jam-packed with goodies. They have a giant foreign language DVD section, but oddly, those are only good for 3 days. All the other films are good for a week. I think with all those subtitles, it would only make sense to let us have the films for more than 7 days, not less.
Today we went to the Brighton library. They have a rather large, reasonably new library with shockingly few books inside and somewhat less friendly librarians than the other libraries we've hit. The good part was that just as I was wondering when they were going to have their annual book sale again, I discovered that it was actually in progress. Today was "everything is $1 or $0.50" day, tomorrow is "fill a bag for $3 day," and Sunday (oh glorious, wonderous Sunday) is "everything left is free" day.
We're gonna need another Billy!
