Erm, not everywhere. My twelve-year-old was told that she couldn't take
out books from the adult section, unless it was for school.
So she got a note from her English teacher that she needed Terry
But this is the Bad Library that I've ranted about before: the one that
records everything you borrow and refuses to delete the list (that's
the main reason that my other half and I stopped using it) and doesn't
let children borrow classical music.
My library only allows children to check out 6 items at a time, but as far as I know they're allowed to select books from any part of the library. I know that small libraries have rules like this in part to make sure that the items are distributed fairly, but it drove me mad when I was young and still drives me up a wall on occasion -- even now, when I have the privilege of checking out a whopping 20 items at a time! Luckily I have access to have a huge library system in a neighboring big city, for the use of which my family is happy to cough up $25 per year.
I've always had to run
I don't know just why
Desire slowly smoking
Under the midwest sky
