After three attempts to make it to my borough's main library in Peckham, I finally got there during opening hours. I was surprised at how many people were using it and especially by the number of adults studying and the people using the wireless network. Anyway, I'd say that when it comes to selection, we're still talkin' dinkier than the Nora Library, which was, in fairness, one of IMCPL's best libraries. Still, I love that feeling that you have when you walk out the door with a stack of books and can't actually decide where you want to start, because they're all appealing! And for free! (Minus the inevitable overdue charges that I consider my part of general library upkeep.) It makes you go all squishy inside!
