When was the last time you explored your local library?
Most of us have been in a Library at some point in our lives. If you are like me, you spent time there in high school or college doing research for class term papers. Every school usually has a Librarian who will offer assistance and teach students to look up books in the card catalog and the introduce you to the Dewey Decimal System of how books are categorized. Now days we can search the card catalog with the help of a computer!
In today's modern world of convenience when we want a book we usually hop in the car and head to the nearest Barnes & Noble. Online shopping at Amazon.com has become even more popular and we even have paperless options with the availability to download books straight to our iPad or Kindle device! What would our forefathers think of that??
For those that cannot afford to buy a book or have Internet access, the Library provides a world of learning and technology. It is still a big wonderful place of adventure. Today I discovered that even the Calcasieu Parish Public Library has a Facebook Page!
Every City and town has a landmark public library. Part of my job as a REALTOR is to showcase what there is to do in Lake Charles. So today I am going to introduce you to my local Calcasieu Parish Public Library in Lake Charles, Louisiana. We will be visiting Central Library today and since I was taught to whisper in the Library I will be keeping my voice down low....
My children used to love going to the Library for Children's Story Hour, I still gravitate to the Children's Section because it is such a cool place for the kids! The Calcasieu Parish Public Library branches offer alot of learning activities for kids, they even have a homework help available with a FREE tutoring program!
People still come to the Library to surf the Internet....Every Computer I saw was occupied!
Lake Charles, Louisiana is a wonderful place to live and I am proud to see that our Library System offers residents so many FREE programs and learning opportunities.
