Today at the library the woman behind the desk told me that their circulation has increased in the past month, and she thinks it’s because of me. (Apparently, it’s quite the self-esteem booster when they pass another branch, so fear not–this is a good thing.) It’s possible this is because she sees me lug one stack of books at a time up to checkout, usually making four trips altogether (one per card). It’s also possible that she offered to put a book back on hold for me when I didn’t have space on my husband’s card for it. (Zoom! zoom!: sounds of things that go in the city will be waiting for me next week.)
