While I was there I took a look around to see if there was anything else that might be interested in.
Some time at the card catalog (it's a computer these days), scribble some dewey decimal notes on the paper scraps they provide with those tiny pencils and off to the stacks.
While I was sitting looking at a book on kayaks to see if it was basic enough for me (it was) I looked up & saw a book by Mark Twain, "Roughing It". I thought "Roughing It" was a fiction book & I was in the non-fiction stacks?
I sure was, it seems that Mark Twain's "Roughing It" is considered "American miscellaneous writings", "Description & Travel" and not fiction. Learn something new once again.
The GPS showed me a library close to where we lived so we stopped in for a visit, seems we had enough paperwork for a library card! This makes the 3rd card we've gotten on our travels. Libraries are good things.
The library in Altoona Iowa had no problems with a six month card & no problems renewing it the next year. Rockport Texas wanted $5 for the card but other than that no problems. The librarian in Rockport was surprised we were interested in the books! It seems most people just want access to the internet.
Libraries are good, support yours!
As we left we went through a city building parking lot and they had plug-ins for electric cars. They looked free! Free fuel for your car is a heck of a deal!
|and not just for one car|
Being able to give away electricity is a heck of a thing for a city to do, Lacey must be doing well!
