  • For me it's having to drive to it. I hate driving.

  • Having to return the books on time... and late fees when I inevitably don't. I'm just not together enough to avoid it.

    That's the library's least favorite thing about me, as well. LOL

  • I use to go to use the computer and there is always this guy that sits there talking to himself about baby rapers. Its sick. Mind you I had a baby with me each and every time. Any time I saw him I left. He was a creeper.

  • Finding the dang book on the shelf! The adult sections aren't so bad the the kid's section is a nightmare. You can't just go to the shelf, find the author and find the book. You have to search at least a 6 foot area around the author and even then you still may not find it.

  • Unsupervised kids bouncing off the walls. Besides that --- nothing.

    I LOVE the library and, being homeschoolers, we spend a LOT of time there. Free internet, can sit there all day reading & working on projects, genealogy dept, free classes, book clubs, free programs for the kids ---- it's great!

    We'll be hitting the library twice a week all summer long for free programs for the kids. Video game tournamants, crafts, movies, magic shows, lectures from state park rangers... love it.

  • Parents not supervising their kids. Libraries are meant to be quiet places. There are kid sections for a reason.
