Rediscovering Libraries

By Jim M. 

While out of work, I decided to use my extra time to reconnect with my local library. It had been almost a decade since I set foot inside a library building. I have always been an avid reader and some of my fondest childhood memories are of times spent in the old-fashioned libraries of the 1960s and 70s. My children are grown and I get most of my books as eBooks so I thought that libraries were obsolete – boy was I wrong! I discovered that I can borrow ebooks on my Amazon Kindle and even get electronic magazines. My local library has displays and exhibits that are always great to experience. I can even conduct my job search from the library when I feel a need to get out of the house. My local library has changed and kept up with the times and I am glad to come back to the fold.
