I admit, I had one for the longest time, then they closed the library I used to go to as a kid, so I stopped going.  (I prefer buying books anyway.)  They still have rather nice public libraries around here though.  I wish i still had the card I had when I was a kid but I guess I tossed it some years back.  What's interesting is I was looking for some nice colorful sample library card pics and pickings were rather slim, but I found an photo for the application for the Inglewood Public Library.  I didn't even know Inglewood had a public library, figured you just walked in and showed em your gun and you'd get books.  =P   Anyway do any of you guys have a library card?

Thought that was kind of a nice card.

yep, old and I haven't used it in years.

Most every book I read, I had bought
#11 Posted by johnd13 (8172 posts) -

I always liked to buy my books and I can' t say there are any really good libraries here anyway.

yup if i didn't I'd have a lot of trouble having fun.
#13 Posted by Retro_Future (118 posts) -

I do and I use it quite frequently.

#14 Posted by MonoSilver (1392 posts) -
I have one lying around the house somewhere. I doubt I'll ever find it though so need to get a new one.
#15 Posted by Ace_of_Spades90 (772 posts) -

Yeah, I do have one. I would say I use it about maybe once or twice a week. I mean, you're getting to read books for free--does it get any better than that?

#16 Posted by thriteenthmonke (49824 posts) -
I had one, but haven't for a long time. I buy anything I want to read, though that has resulted in my room becoming too full of books.
#17 Posted by comp_atkins (31924 posts) -
nope, but the wife does.
#18 Posted by Namgis (3592 posts) -

Sure do. I love the library system in my town. I have been borrowing games for years. Saved me thousands of dollars and given me a chance to try out games before I buy. I also get tons of digital books and magazines. If I was in need, I could use their computers to access the internet for an hour per day. I still can't believe the card is free. I would gladly pay to have it.

We got

Wii/DS - 290+ titles(many duplicates) almost 80 available at any time.

360 - 180+ with 85 available.

PS3 - 240+ with 90 available.

It's brilliant. You get a weeks loan, 2 max out at one time.

#22 Posted by PiscesChick93 (10713 posts) -

Yes I do, had to get a new one last summer as I was no longer in the library records due to not going there. Still haven't been there since last summer. :p

#23 Posted by Fightingfan (38011 posts) -
No need for one as I don't read nonfiction.

Wow. Color me impressed.
#25 Posted by Namgis (3592 posts) -

Wow. Color me impressed.Allicrombie

The only real drawback is the fact that they only fine you a max of $12 for damaging or losing one. Which sucks because there are plenty of meatheads that are first to borrow a brand new title and keep it. $60 or $12?

#26 Posted by TheFlush (5639 posts) -

Nope, libraries are outdated. I only read on my iPad, so I download my books.

Around here they fine you a dollar per day that you are overdue on DVD's (I don't think my library system has video games yet). I find a major drawback to be all of the damage the DVD's receive because previous renters either chew on them or use them as beer coasters :x

Ehhhh I live in Jacksonville and my card don't look like that.... Then again, I've been using the same card for 7+ years now.... Jax library system is really nice. Usually I check out dvds, comic books/graphic novels, manga, and sometimes a book. There is a library near my house and another close to where I work. So I use my card often.

Canadian meatheads are the worst
#32 Posted by kittensRjerks (3802 posts) -

#33 Posted by Yusuke420 (2770 posts) -

Also to answer the topic, I gave mine back once they started to limit the amount of time you could spend on the computer.

I have a library card somewhere, just can't seem to locate it.
#35 Posted by Asagea_888 (429 posts) -

I have one from the Torrance Library, but haven't used it since high school XD

Well, it's mostly because I buy books at the bookstore now.

#36 Posted by wis3boi (31938 posts) -

Mhm, I do.  Haven't used it in about 12 years

#38 Posted by k2theswiss (16599 posts) -

#39 Posted by GhettoBlastin92 (1228 posts) -
Yeah I still have one, just went there the other day actually.
#40 Posted by Blueresident87 (5340 posts) -

I currently do not.

#41 Posted by br0kenrabbit (13395 posts) -

Yeah, I do. Why rent DVDs when you can get them for free at the library?

 

#42 Posted by nooblet69 (5162 posts) -

Yeah, haven't used it in years though.

#43 Posted by josephl64 (4424 posts) -

I've had 3, but never used them as I either just buy books or read them online

#44 Posted by PipeBigboss (213 posts) -

#45 Posted by MAILER_DAEMON (45906 posts) -
I've got one but haven't used it in a long time. Working at a bookstore has its perks.
#46 Posted by aaronmullan (33411 posts) -
I do, but it's really old. Like 2003/4.
#47 Posted by Pirate700 (46465 posts) -

I wouldn't be in the library for that to happen. :P
