Have you visited your local public library lately? Long gone are the days of card catalogs and library marms telling you to hush! It is a wonderland of education and fun for youth and adults alike.
My wife has been telling me for months that things have changed...we started bringing the kids to storytime at our local library a few years ago. It was fun for the kids and we were able to check out books for the kids to read at home.
But did you know that the newer libraries (or the renovated ones) have rows and rows of computers to use for free (an hour at a time) and that they are connected to the Internet at smoking fast speeds?
How about the arts and crafts programs for kids that focus on reading and other important skills? There are even classes and meetings for adults. I am going to teach a few classes at the one in Riverside called the Woodcrest Community Library.
My son, Dane, is pictured above playing online at one of the educational websites the library has bookmarked.
