Trying to find the library

Today, I went to the library. Or really I should say I tried to go. I wanted to get this book for a presentation I'm working on. The book wasn't at the library closest to me, it was at one a solid distance away. Now, I looked up where this library was on the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea website. It had a map, showing the location of the library: Supposedly where the library is. Now, you have to scroll down a little. Of course, I assumed was correct. Bad decision. I remember the first week of classes my freshman year of high school my geometry teacher (can't remember her name, but she's still there) told us the classic "when you assume you make and ass out of u and me" statement. But moving on. If you click on the location that's part of the pop up on the page I just linked to, you come to here: Actual location of the library. Conveniently I found this out after I walked around the Notting Hill area for a while. It's a pretty area, but it was chilly and I have a bit of a cold, so it was a little frustrating not finding the library. So I gave up and came back to the room. It probably used up an hour and a half at most. Oh well, learned something new today.


  1. Mrs McIntyre was your geometry teacher if I'm not mistaken... Well at least you saw a new part of London!


  2. Love to hear of college students going to the library!!

  3. I think you're right mom.

    And Mrs. Grady, yup I've been to a library a few times (although, there's one in the building I'm in so it's not too hard). And I've gotten a card for the local library, but haven't found much there that's helpful so far.
