The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Have you Been to YOUR Library Lately?

Have you Been to YOUR Library Lately?

My wife and children have always been Library Addicts; and because of this, my oldest child is getting a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science right now.  Do you have any idea how many great things you can do at your local library - it is not just a place where you can take out books and DVDs!

Cheshire Public Library Librarian Appreciation

Of course there are many programs for the smallest tykes, but one of the things that I find most refreshing is how much attention is being given to the teenagers.  But they don't stop there!  There are plenty of activities for adults and families (including genealogy, movie matinees, and wildlife programs!).  If you don't see anything that appeals to you, take the Adult Programming Survey to let them know what you would like! 

Check out all the things they have to offer - They are more than just books!

Want to buy some great used books?  Cheshire Library has a book sale that will be going on Thursday through Saturday October 21-23.  Check their website for hours each day!

I actually haven't in a while.  I think I will make it a fun day with my 5 year old.  Thank you for the reminder.

Chris, did you know that September is national library card signup month?  Two of my blogs in the 30/30 challenge were about my local libraries.

Chris, do you have to have a library card, or can you CRUISE?    I would have to locate mine.   Great Localism post!

Hi Joan,  Well, in Connecticut, you can use any library in the state with your town's library card!  As Juli mentions above, September is National Library Card Signup month.  If you can't find your card, it may be expired anyway, so head on down to your favorite branch and check it out!  As far as the websites go, you can find all kinds of interesting information on them, and some of the links don't require a library card; but it would be a lot of poking around to find out.

San Diego finally broke ground on a new library, after spending $250,000 each year for 15 years studying whether or not to build a new library. They could have just built it!

Looks like they will get the building up and then not be able to stock it with the $3,750,000 they have already spent!
