I don't know about you, but if there's one thing in this world I love more than anything, it might be libraries.

There's something so appealing about all of the books in a library- and you can try them without buying them. Maybe you want to learn about knitting, or gardening, or having a dog, or cooking, or or or or or anything really.

Not to mention how appealing and soothing the interior of a library can be. Library porn is probably my most time consuming hobby. I like to visit the libraries of cities I'm visiting because I'm THAT INTO LIBRARIES. There are so many beautiful libraries in the world, it makes me wish Beast would swoop in and kidnap someone I love just so I can get a beautiful library out of the deal. I may have a problem.

Anywho. Libraries rock. Not only do they offer books, but you can check out music, DVDs, books on tape, magazines, and if you're lucky your library has a Crazy Mocha in it. CLP Main rocks my socks!
