Field Trip Friday: The Haddonfield Public Library!

Since it's Friday and I'm feeling a little better, I thought we would take a little field my local library!

You guys know I LOVE my library, right?  

I would live amongst the shelves like a little library fairy if I could!
Then, I would pop out and make suggestions to patrons browsing the shelves.
Yes, yes I would.

Join me for a few minutes of browsing the cookbook shelves!

If you live nearby, consider visiting the Haddonfield Friends of the Library Book Sale!

It's Sat. Sept 21st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sun. Sept. 22nd from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Last year, I got a huge bag of books for like $10!  Come during the last hour(s) of the sale for best deals, or, come early for best selection.  There are usually tons of cookbooks.  

Last year at the book sale, I found Jacques Pepin's memoir in almost-new condition, score!

It's a great read, especially if you are a fan of JP.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. What a good idea to do a library tour! I love ours for the same reason - a terrific selection of cookbooks. I enjoy giving cookbooks a test drive now before I buy them, and using the library is a great way to experience them before committing. Plus, I'm so happy that they're there as a resource for people who are considering going vegan!

    Have you thought about turning your phone horizontally when you film? Then you'll have video across the whole screen.

    1. Hi Cadry! Glad you liked the library field trip!

      There's a hilarious YouTube video about filming horizontally,called "turn your phone," you would love it :-) Here's the link:

      With the library stacks being vertical, I actually chose to use portrait mode (vertical) to make this. It also felt more like being in a library to me to have it narrow like that :-)

      Also, with the particular cover I have on my phone, it's easier to hold it vertically rather than horizontally, but I do have other movies that I filmed horizontally, too. I think I need a new cover :-)


  2. I love my libraries, too! I love borrowing books to read and browsing the vegan cookbook section, too!

    And yay for library sales! I go to 2nd hand book sales here and pick up so many books at low prices!

    1. I love libraries but am still a little scared of librarians!
