Do you borrow books from the library?
I rarely do.
This past weekend was a 3-day weekend but we ended up not really going anywhere because of the rain/typhoon.
We did, go to the library for "research".
Satoshi was looking up info for a trip we are thinking of taking to Tohoku.
Me, I was interested in looking at a book I saw featured in another book.
When I checked on the computer, the book I was interested in was at another library, so I requested it to be brought to one closer to us.
I put in my request and the clerk told me that my library card was expired.
Geez, I didn't even realize there was an expiration date on it!
Apparently, my card was REALLY expired, like 3 years past the expiration....oops!
Thirteen years ago, I had requested the card so that I could take information out on kamon (family crests).
Can't believe it has been that long since I was researching that...
On another subject, did you know that most people go to the library in Japan to read manga? I was shocked when I first saw this 13 years ago.
When I was going to college, the only time I stepped into a library was to use their resources, like encyclopedias (do people even use those now?! maybe not with the internet now, yeah?!).
Satoshi said he never went to the library for research during college...
Have you borrowed anything from or gone to the library recently?
