reminder by my library to renew a book

23 Mar

london monday 2015

i have been with my library for ages but today first time i received a email reminder from them. i think it is marvelous of them to send an email on the day a book expires, saying ‘dont pay a fine, renew book and give me a phone number and a link as well as tell me which book is due.

i recall the librarian asking me to fill up a form when my library card will not allow me to borrow a book; can’t remember the exact date but it was late last year i think.  my library card was up for its renewal, it does that every 3 yrs or so i think; and i entered my email address.

i keep tabs of the renewal dates of course, marking my daily calendar which i hang on my kitchen wall to remind me to renew. so i am seldom caught out. even then, i was caught out once, so this service is rather welcomed.

nowadays with online renewal, to be caught out with an overdue book is rare and so it should be, as it is not the business of a library to gain at the expense of its users like this. 

the book that was due  is ‘delhi’ by sam miller.

i like that book very much, he walked in delhi and wrote about what he saw and his thoughts. it has copyright 2009. it is a book to savour and read slowly.

      i like their computer service too. and their buying the newspapers everyday for everyone to read. and cheap photocopying. i go there everyday. to different branches too just for variety’s sake. haha. the library service is one of the unsung joys of living in london.

    I love going to my local library. Save so much money instead of buying books.

      not only save money buying books, but u dont have so many books to shelf, and clutter up the room too. if only people realise it, that books are for reading, not to keep and hoard.
