the libraryIt’s National Library Week and I am a confirmed library lover. I’ve been hooked on the library ever since I was 5 years old and got in trouble for picking books from the regular reading room instead of staying in the children’s section where I “belonged.”

Back then, libraries were all books and story time and those cool card catalogs. Public libraries today are still full of books and story time but there are so many more things you can do at the library now—and those cool card catalogs? Well, they’ve been replaced by computers.

If you haven’t checked out your public library lately, you are way overdue for a visit. You really need to see what you can do at a library today.
