If that's not nice, I don't know what is.
2. I really like the library's hold shelves. I walk through one set to get from the door to the book return and then the next set down to get from the book return to my place in the hold shelves. I like that I have my place in the hold shelves that I know because it's mine, but more than that I like seeing all the things that my neighbors have decided that they want to read enough to ask for them to be held specially. There are brand-new books and old books and every category you could think of. There are things I have read myself and things I've never heard of. And all of it is stuff that has been requested recently, more or less--they only hold stuff for a week--and next week there will be just as many books that people want to read.
This makes me happy.
