I LOVE the public library! Since I was a little kid I’ve had a library card. Back then librarians and card catalogs helped me discover books to read. Or I just roamed around until a book jumped of the shelf.
Now from the comfort of my own home I log into my library account and quickly put an item on hold. My local library website is easy to navigate and has the latest books, movies, cds, etc. I receive emails when my item is in plus alerts when it’s due! No late fees for me!
When I pick my dvd and/or books up there is usually a lot of activity…folks enjoying the butterfly garden outside, perhaps an event in one of the rooms, the used bookstore, kids playing in the colorful area designed for them, people using the computers and/or printers and of course the jigsaw puzzle table.
I am so glad my local library embraces technology AND community.
I sure hope they never go out of style.
Do you enjoy your local library?
