I feel that Mobile isn’t really a big city for tourism. There are many things to do here; museums, parks, shops…but it always seems to be quiet and peaceful. We often end up wondering where everyone is and wonder if we are missing something! Yesterday we headed downtown for some lunch and I then wanted to go and visit the library. I was intrigued more than anything, not only was this grand building huge (bigger than most libraries I have seen), it was also quite mysterious. From the outside, you could not see into the building. Every time we had driven past, I had always wondered what it was like inside.
I had been on the website and looked into getting a library card. I wasn’t entirely convinced that I would be eligible but I had proof of our stay and address. The online catalogue also showed that there were some Mollie Makes books available; the ones that I had been looking at buying!
The car park was busy. It appeared that this was the place where everyone was! I filled out the form, presented my ID and was given a brand new library card. Now, I hate to admit this but I haven’t used a library since my time in University, where all of the books I read were about various educational issues and they would help me to write assignments. Over the last couple of years I have taken my class to visit their local library but never actually used it myself!
