I’ve said it before, but possibly THE best bit about the Okanagan, other than the weather and certainly one of my favourite bits anyway, is the library….
And it’s just got better!
Not content to have a massive CD library section, TV shows and documentaries on DVD, they now have movies on DVD! Some oldies, some new ones, more to come as the service rolls out. Everything from the Disney films, Batman Begins, Jurassic Park, the Indiana Jones movies, Munich, The Prestige to Atonement, and more, loads! I remember speaking to the crew at the library a few months back and them saying they were worried about people like Blockbuster, but who cares if you take them out? They wouldn’t give you the same courtesy, so stuff them! I’m raving I know, but this is brilliant!….
It never amazes me, when asked what do we do without TV, that people have no idea the library offers so much, for free. In the UK you had to pay for CD’s or DVD’s and videos from the library, but here, no. You have no joining fee, no rental fees, unless you bring them back late, but the new films you get for a week, so if you bring ’em back late, well, that’s your fault.
So, get off your backsides and get yourselves off to your local library, especially if you live here in the Okanagan. You can even save yourself a few quid by cancelling the cable TV….
Mind you, if you encounter the guy with the beard and dangerous ties, steer clear. Not only does he keep turning the checkout machine off, while you’re checking your things out, but he’s right rude! And whatever you do, don’t get on the wrong side of Sophie….
