We couldn't agree more.  Come visit your local library.  A quiet place to study, relax, work or simply escape in a good book.  It's fun, the old fashioned way.  Watch the local paper for upcoming special events at our hometown library.  These could include book signings, Christmas Tea, adult coloring, summer reading program and so much more!
