Whether you’re looking to meet new people or hoping to avoid talking with others altogether, the libraries are just the place for you! Adults can socialize at the Cards & Coffee program at Woodville Branch Library; meet and share ideas with fellow crafters at the Annie Get Your Glue Gun program at the County Main Library; commiserate with other parents after Baby Time, Story Time, Stay & Play and LEGO ® programs at all libraries; and “talk books” with avid readers of the same genres at book club meetings. Members of groups can also schedule their own programs in library meeting rooms. On the other hand, if you’re interested in getting out but not necessarily seeking a lot of interaction, you may enjoy Booked for Lunch and other author events like, the Library Lecture Series, The Music of Science program, or exploring self-guided reading recommendations via the “Staff Picks” and “Recently Returned” displays.
Children and teens will find a wide range of activities and entertainment this summer. They, too, have options for socializing or not. Read all about “A Universe of Stories” and our kick-off of “The Best Week Ever” in this newsletter. Detailed information will be found in the online calendars and printed schedules at your favorite library.
Now is a good time to share the public library with people you know. On your way to pick up a hold, look for a good movie or attend a program. Bring family members and friends with you. Encourage them to get a library card, enjoy the facilities, and make the most of our programs, services and collections. Libraries are for everyone!
