Summer Library Challenge : Final Update

I really enjoyed this challenge! I completed 20 books. I was doing a lot of other events in June and July so I didn't get to participate as much as I wanted but I was happy to get some books read. Hope you all met your reading goals.
Reviewing Library Books
Hello Everyone! I cant believe how fast this challenge is passing by. This weeks topic is reviewing Library books. I recently started using the library again in the past 9 months because of financial reasons. My reviewing of them depends on my time and if I’m participating in a readathon or other event.
For Example right now I’m running an event called Fangirl Summer:
Fiction State of Mind-03
So I've been getting a lot of graphic novels and geeky themed middle grade and young adult reads to review for posts. I also make sure to put upcoming releases on hold at the library so I can do timely reviews. I also go long periods of time not reviewing library books but I will showcase them on twitter or my weekly update Sunday Share.

Library Survey

1. What’s the name of your library and how close is it to where you live?
I'm part of the Los Angeles Public Library System that has numerous branches. There are 3 branches within tin minutes of my home but I primarily use the West Valley Regional Branch.
2. How frequently do you go to the library?
Once or two times a week
3. What is the first section you normally go to when you get to the library?
Graphic Novels & Manga
4. Share a link to your library’s webpage. How often do you use it and what for? I use it to put books on hold and renew them
5. Does your library have a summer reading program for your age group? Do you participate and why or why not?
No they don't have one for my age group
6. What is one thing you can think of that would make your library better?
The staff could be a lot nicer.The older staff seem to hate their jobs and the younger staff are picking up their bad habits.
7. Does your library have a self checkout station and do you use it more than the circulation clerks?
They don't have a self checkout station
8. What programs have you attended or thought of attending at your library?
I haven't attended any in a long time. The ladt one was a lecture about sound healing.
9. Do you have family that utilizes the library with you? Who is your “library buddy”?
Nope! Just me .
10. What is the best thing about your library? 

That it exists! I've recently been using the library a lot more for budgetary reasons, also the new books area is a great place to find  books I didn't know about.

I' have lots of books on my Library wish list, and I’m sure I will pick up a lot of spur of the moment reads but her is a list of what I’ll be reading for the challenge in the next few weeks:
