As a book nerd, I love libraries. I could just walk up and down the aisles looking at the spines without ever checking out a book and still be perfectly happy. But, geekery aside, libraries are great places to get information on local services and events, use the interwebs and of course have access to tons of free reading material. Back when I was a kid, the selections were pretty much books, magazines and cassette tapes. Now you can get CDs and DVDs too, and thus get addicted to new music or a TV series. Not to mention that a lot of libraries now have e-books.
I like to spend some time wandering around, picking up whatever I fancy, then retiring to a comfortable chair to leisurely peruse my big stack of selections. And some libraries have coffee shops. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better… 🙂
