Dizzying Library Hours
I was hoping to visit our village library. So I looked up the opening hours. Good thing I didn't just try to stop by:
|Tuesday & Friday||6-8pm|
However, during the holidays (whenever those are; perhaps when school is not in session, like now?):
|Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday||Presumably Closed|
I feel a bit dizzy (but speaking of remembering rules and times/days, I did remember to put the garden waste out yesterday for the first time, with the special orange tag which I had to wet and stick together around the bin handle, and the trash today in the special bags at the end of the street - I forgot to bring the yard waste bin in last night, but someone else forgot until this morning too, so I felt better that I wasn't the last to collect it).
Back to books/movies, I have discovered that there is a DVD shop in downtown Zurich that is called ELM (English Language Media) - we had a similar store in Geneva when I was growing up, and we used to rent videos from it. But it's 23 minutes from our house here (or so Google Maps says), so I don't know if we would use that much. I am trying to choose a replacement for Netflix (USA) / Glowria.fr (France) / Amazon.co.uk (UK) DVD Rentals by mail. There are also a couple of companies in Switzerland that specialize in ordering English-language books, so I am trying out one of those for more books for the kids.
