But to despair was to wish back for something already lost.
Or to prolong what was already unbearable.

I'm not sure if my local library has any or not. I usually go to the library to study and I'm usually in the adult section, so I've never noticed.

My personal library is 1/3rd Manga, 1/3rd fantasy books (Terry Pratchett, etc) and 1/3rd RPG books like Dungeons and Dragons.

And now that I've reread the point of this topic: yes, the local library has some manga too. Although its not much, a few Yu-gi-oh, some Initial D, maybe Berzerk? Nothing special.

my local library does, but what i really like is that all the libraries in my state are connected, so i could request a book from another county and get it =]
and, actually, there is a very good selection if i do it that way

It carries a little but not very many ones that appeal to me. Mainly Shoujo.

My public library has a small selection, but it is quickly growing. If I remember correctly, my school library didn't have much. Only stuff like Naruto.

No way... First of all, the only library that we have in our school is the French one. There's no such thing as a school library in most of Greek schools and if there is, it certainly doesn't contain mangas.

The reaction of a librarian (told by a friend): Manga? What's that? Is it tasty?

My school library: yes, has manga They don't have many series, but they have Fake, Fruits Basket, Genshiken, Death Note, and Astro Boy. They got more this semester, but I haven't been there yet to see what they are ^_^ It's very helpful when you are waiting for class

I just moved to a new town, so I'm not sure if the town library will have any. Must take a look ^_^
