#storytimesunday or rather #storytimemonday (cmon mom get with it). This week’s book is Box Turtle at Long Pond by William T. George. This was such an interesting peek into the life of a wild box turtle! My favorite activity the box turtle did was sunbathe, because I also like stretching out under a warm patch of sun. This is me pretending to be the turtle in the book. Do you think I look like him?? #bookworm #booklover #bookstagram #bookish #reading #readingtime #readingrocks #library #librariesrock #librarybook #tortoise #tortoisesofinstagram #turtles #turtlesofinstagram #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #boxturtle #boxturtlesofinstagram #russiantortoise #russiantortoisesofinstagram #darnellthetort

Library Officer Katelyn is getting on board with today’s Weird and Wonderful Word! Cryptozoology is the search for and study of animals whose existence is unproven, such as the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot...our maybe even our very own Houghton Howler? 🤔 #ttglibrary #teatreegully #adelaide #cryptozoology #houghtonhowler #librariesofinstagram #librarylove #weirdandwonderfulwords #librariesrock #librarylife #librarydays #youlearnsomethingneweveryday #libraryfun

“I wouldn't want to hear Beethoven without beautiful bass, the cellos, the tuba. It's very important. Hip-hop has thunderous bass. And so does Beethoven. If you don't have the bass, it's like being amputated. It's like you have no legs.”
~Lou Reed

📚❄️ Winter Reads ❄️📚 Every year, my library has a winter reading program. Usually, you fill out a bookmark and turn it in when you've read four books. Then you get some little prizes, usually a mug. The past couple years they've given ice scrapers! And this year I got a round lip balm thing, which I haven't tried yet.

Also this year they did Winter Reads Bingo. It was harder than I thought it would be! Swipe to see the whole board. A fun idea! When you turn in your slip or bingo board, you are entered in a drawing. Last year I won a $100 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble! 🏆

I really love my library. It is part of a suburban system, Ramsey County Suburban Library, that includes seven branches. I can request items from any of the branches and they'll be sent to my home branch. Each branch seems to have its own flavor. I can get almost anything!

Even if they don't own it already, I can request they add it to their collection, and sometimes they do. P.S. I'm finally going to read The Lies of Locke Lamora, since @paperfury loves it so much. 📚📚📚 Devil's Wedding Ring rec'd by @crimebythebook ! Give her a follow!

Believe me, I know how lucky I am. I know there are many areas around the country that don't have such great library systems. And I know that there are many countries that don't have the system we have here.

All I can say is, if you have a good library system, support it. I love my library, and it loves me back! ❤️

My little township library. I live right down the road and I am the library manager here (meaning I am the one employee here although we are connected to a district library). I grew up riding my bike to this little library, checking out Sweet Valley Twins and Fear Street books (now you can deduce my age). Now I order the books, chat with the patrons, run the book club, and help people find the information they need. I couldn't ask for a better life here in this little community or a better job right here down the road from my house. And that's my Lilly in the last picture. She has the day off and decided to join me at the library. #librarianlifeforme #librariesrock #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram

I have always been a keen reader. I try to instil a love of reading in my grandchildren too. It is so lovely reading to the little ones! #reading #books #librariesrock #readmorebooks #childrensbooks @albatron3 @tanya_djordjevic @acathaa #library

Every year librarians at the Boston Public Library celebrate Black History Month by compiling and annotating an excellent list of recent works concerning the Black American experience. You can download the list from the BPL website for free. To make it easy for you to check out these books, click on the link in our bio—it has links to each book’s catalog record so you can place a hold. (This list is also available on our catalog page).
