According to the Librarians this includes going "self service". Im not sure what this will entail but it doesnt sound like good employment news for the librarians.
The closure will cover school half term, which is inconvenient as I usually take the tribe down there for some book choosing and a bit of them begging for me to borrow DVD's, Wii games or Dsi games for them to play with. Its actually a good way of trying out games without committing to buying them. From previous experience something that sounds good ends up causing so much strife that I confiscate it. There is a small charge to borrow media items, usually less than £2 for a week.
The good thing about the closure at the library is that we can take books and media items out and keep them for the whole three weeks whilst only being charged for one week.
We have stocked up, for the children we have Lego Starwars for the Wii and Mariokart for the Dsi, also the new video of The A Team, we have a selection of the original ones so I hope they like this, I'm sure the special effects will be better.
For the grown ups I have the first series of True Blood, I have read all the books and love them and I watched most of the TV series but will enjoy filling in the gaps. Also the US series Justified starring Timothy Olyphant. I started watching this when it showed on TV but it was on late at night and I kept forgetting it.
I could get these out any time but 7 days is not long enough to watch 13 episodes so I dont bother, I have these till the 12th march.
Best thing is that all this cost about £7.
Good value and I will wait and see how the "refurbishment" turns out.
