Library Dreams

I had a dream about the library last night. I think this dream was prompted by the fact that a new library branch is opening up near my house. In my dream, the new branch was open and we went to visit it. It was pretty well stocked and the trip was good until we tried to check out books. As we tried to check out books, we were informed of a new library policy. Only five books could be checked out at a time per household. I was horrified. That's not even one book per person at our house. I tried to negotiate with the librarian but it was fruitless.

When I woke up I was relieved that this had only been a dream. Our library actually has an incredibly generous book limit. With one card, you can check out up to 100 books. We have four library cards at our house, which really means we could have 400 books from the library at our house. We haven't gotten close to that number, but it is nice to know that I can check out books without concern over limits.


  1. I love it! This is the kind of thing I have nightmares about, too. How soon will the new branch open?

  2. It was supposed to open this week, but the library website is now saying next week. So, I don't think they are even very sure of the opening date.
