Monthly Resolution: Florence Library

I visited the Florence branch of the Boone County Library system last week. It was much smaller than their main library and the nonfiction books were arranged in an odd order but I found a few things to check out. That’s only the second of the Boone County system:  Main Library, Florence Branch with the rest to go:  Lents Branch, Scheben Branch, Walton Branch, and Chapin Memorial Library -Petersburg.

For other library systems:  Cincinnati and Hamilton County:  Main Library,  Anderson, Avondale,  Blue Ash,  Bond Hill,  Cheviot,  Clifton,  College Hill,  Corryville,  Covedale, Deer Park, Delhi Township, Elmwood Place, Forest Park, Green Township, Greenhills, Groesbeck, Harrison, Hyde Park, Loveland, Madeira, Madisonville, Mariemont, Miami Township, Monfort Heights, Mt. Healthy, Mt. Washington, North Central, Northside, Norwood, Oakley, Pleasant Ridge, Price Hill, Reading, St. Bernard, Sharonville, Symmes Township, Walnut Hills, West End, Westwood, and  Wyoming.

Butler County:  Fairfield Lane Library, Hamilton Lane Library, Law Library, Middletown, Oxford Lane Library, Smith Library of Regional History, Trenton, and West Chester.    (Butler County apparently has two different library systems.)

Campbell County:   Cold Springs, Fort Thomas, Newport, South Branch (not yet built)

Clermont County:   Amelia Branch, Batavia Branch-Doris Wood, Bethel Branch, Felicity Branch, Goshen Branch, Milford Miami Township Branch, New Richmond-Harold F. Flannery Branch, Owensville Branch, Union Township Branch, and Williamsburg Branch-Marion G. Croswell.

Kenton County:   Covington, Erlanger, and Durr-Independence.


That takes care of one of my monthly resolutions but I’ll try to visit more libraries before the year’s end.


The rest of my resolutions aren’t doing so well:

1.  Writing: Goal –write 100,000 words. So far I’ve only written 12,805 while needing 24,750 to be on track.

2.  Publishing: Goal–submit 105 manuscripts.  So far I’ve sent out 27,  only needing 25.89.

3. Video: Goal– three projects.  So far, nothing.

4. Blogging: Goal– 250 blog posts.  This is the 62nd, needing 61.64.

5. Art: Goal–five projects. I started two but have finished zero.

6. Running: Goal–1,825 miles. I’m up to 742.7 miles so far.

7.  Endurance: Goal–Either run 26.2 miles or do 50 push ups in one sitting. Ran it.

8. Weight: Goal–Maintain weight under 205 pounds. At last count, 211.

9. Spiritual:  Goal–Read all of the Koran, six more books of the Bible, and three works of H.P. Lovecraft.  I’ve got 17 sura to go on the Koran, have finished Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Baruch, Daniel, and Hosea, and three stories of Lovecraft.

10. Monthly resolution:  This month visit a new library.



  1. […] I had to use one of my repeats so that I didn’t fail June–I was hoping  to visit four notable places that I’ve never been to before but had to settle with visiting a new library, something I did earlier in the year. […]
