In praise of libraries

Do you have a library card? I sure hope you do! Libraries aren't just for dusty old tomes and quiet anymore. They loan DVD's, CD's, magazines, books old and new, book club bags, museum passes, host discussions and meetings, the list goes on and on. My local library even has free coffee.
  • One amazing deal in the Twin Cities is the Museum Adventure Pass. When you check this pass out, you get two free admissions to a cultural destination such as the MN Zoo or Walker Art Center. 
  • If you have kids, many libraries offer free story time for several different age groups as well as summer reading programs
  • Often a library or county library system will bring in local or even nationally recognized authors for book discussions
  • Many library systems are online, where you can browse for books, renew, and put items on hold via the web. Some even send you email reminders when your books are almost due.
Take a trip to your local library this summer, you won't regret it!
