Library Loot ~ something new

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire @ The Captive Reader and Linda @ Silly Little Mischief that encourages us to share the names of books we checked out of the library.  See what others got this week.

I've started something new.  No, not the library loot posts, but a new way to use the library.  When I moved to St. Louis, I got library cards from the St. Louis County Library and from the University City Public Library.  My town (U-City) is in St. Louis County, so I'm eligible for both library systems.  When I was having car problems, now fixed, I couldn't get to either library without begging rides with others going that way.  So I tapped into the system set up by U-City to bring books to the seniors at the Crown Center where I live.  Deliveries are scheduled for every three weeks.  All I have to do is put books on reserve, and they'll be placed in a bag for me until the next delivery day!  Fantastic!

Still working on my DASH Diet:

I love that they do deliveries; that is such a wonderful idea! Have you gotten into downloading e-books from the library? I haven't done that yet

Sometimes it's easier to read an actual book, like for the charts in the DASH Diet books. I have a Kindle, and I need to learn how to download novels from the library. In other words, for books I'm simply reading and not studying.
