BTT: Library Usage

Suggested by Barbara:
I saw that National Library week is coming up in April, and that led to some questions. How often do you use your public library and how do you use it? Has the coffeehouse/bookstore replaced the library? Did you go to the library as a child? Do you have any particular memories of the library? Do you like sleek, modern, active libraries or the older, darker, quiet, cozy libraries?

I use my public library a couple times a month right now. I've accumulated a lot of books of my own lately, so I've been trying to read those before heading to the library for more. Also, my library doesn't have the largest selection (I'd be surprised if my whole library was any more than 1200 square feet) so there's a lot of stuff that I want to read that I can't get there anyways. The bookstore has replaced the library only a little bit lately just because of the limited selection that my library has.
I went to the library all the time as a kid! My hometown library was at least twice the size of my current library and I thought that it was so cool that I got to go downstairs all by myself (to the children's/YA section) while my parents stayed upstairs.
Now-a-days, I like the sleeker, more modern designed libraries. They tend to have more spacious and convenient shelving layouts. I don't usually go to the library to actually read since I would rather do that at home or at a coffee shop. I like to be able to speak with others about books, find new releases (or old ones I didn't know about), and have a few people around that also enjoy books.
