The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Local cinema / library

I’ve written a few posts about live entertainment and theatre and the joy of experience over shopping and buying things.

I’d forgotten to mention another great contributor to experience over ownership.

The Library

It’s a place to borrow books, films and other media so that one copy can then be enjoyed by many people. Brilliant recycling!

Our library has some key additional features. IMG_7732.JPG
notice that Romans means Novels in Dutch.


Behind these women drinking a nice glass of wine (in the library, in the evening!) there’s a little door.


You can just make out from my blurred handiwork the sign on the door. It says Filmzaal. Yes, there’s a cinema in our library.

It specialises in smaller budget films and interesting topics. It has two screenings a week and a healthy attendance.

The room is small but has a great screen and real cinema style seating. It’s a great way to spend an evening. There’s also an afternoon film club.

There’s more info on the website. Wassenaar bibliotech

    I’ve never been a shopaholic, but I noticed that since I started blogging, when I go on a trip, I get so much satisfaction out of taking pictures that I no longer feel the need to buy anything from the shops. Except for some coffee and cake, of course 😉

    Love libraries!

    Libraries in the US typically have a community room or meeting room open to the public. Sometimes they have authors come in and sometimes we have wine and cheese parties as well!

      That’s another great use. In some UK libraries they’ve had music performances too.

        It’s basically free books. Why buy them when you are only going to use them once, maybe twice?
        My library also has a pretty good music CD collection, so I am loading up my iTunes for free also. My taxes at work!

    Oh, that’s great! I haven’t been to a library in years – must join the Berlin one when I get all my documents in order!
