Now I am 65 and I love the library even more. You can check out records, magazines, movies along with the books, and they have lectures, clubs and computers! Mostly I go to sit for a spell with a good book or magazine, or to research my hobbies and interests, strolling through the aisles to see what catches my interest on that day. The available computers are great but I really do miss the old card catalog. More importantly the library is still my get-away place. The quiet place of refuge when I am frustrated, sad, mad, lonely, overwhelmed, confused, tired or just want to get away from everything and everybody. I go to be still, to think, to read, to find an answer, to consider my options, to make a plan..........and smell the books.
Then I am all better again.
