It’s never too late to learn something new! Our local libraries offer many interesting, educational, and social activities for individuals of all ages. Take a look at how you can get involved in learning something new at your local library this year:
The library is a great place to find out more about online courses available on a variety of topics. Whether you are interested in exploring art and history, food and nutrition, science and technology, or any topic in between – there’s something for everyone. Your local librarian can help get you started with courses that interest you most.
Libraries often host monthly book clubs for those who enjoy coming together for book discussions! Contact your local library to find out about their offerings and how to sign up. You can also find virtual book clubs online on all different book topics and genres at bookclubs.com.
Author talks are a great opportunity to meet and listen to the writers themselves! Our local libraries (or local bookstores) often host author talks so you can learn more about the author’s process, and even get inspired to explore writing yourself!
Do you have questions about using computers, tablets, smartphones, or any other tech programs? The library is a great place to get free assistance with technology and even learn about how you can use it to improve your day to day.
Do you have free time on your hands and want an enriching volunteering experience? There are many volunteer opportunities at the local libraries. Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community and even meet new friends.
