Musing Mondays: Library companionship


Who, if anyone usually accompanies you to the library? Is it somewhere you go alone? Or is it a regular outing with family or friends? Which do you prefer?

A lot of my visits to the library tend to be stopping by just to pick up a book on reserve. If, however, I go to wander or explore, odds are that my wife will be with me. As I’ve noted before, it is not uncommon for one of our weekend “dates,” particularly in the winter, to consist of browsing around the main or one of the branch libraries and then going out for lunch or dinner.

I have no strong preference because once in the library we tend to roam different areas. Still, I would guess that a vast majority time if one of us is going to the library for more than just dropping off a book or picking one up, we ask the other if they want to go.

…more people need to start spending as much time in the library as they do on the basketball court.

  • I think it’s wonderful you and wife have dates at the library. Very cute. I also like to roam around as well.
    Here’s my musing

  • love your page design, and what a nice thing to do–take your wife on a date to the library.

  • My mother always brought me and my brother to the library when we were little, though I don’t remember that my dad ever went. I follow her tradition by spending time at the library with my son. I go more often with him than I go alone.
