A to Z Challenge: L is for Libraries

is for Libraries

Libraries are not just for browsing through the endless rows of books and checking out what sparks your interest. Libraries offer an array of lectures to attend and events to participate in. From learning the history of your town or region, learning the basics of computers, author lectures either on the craft of writing or a series about their books, and not limited to writing critique groups. The topics are endless, just like the choice of books.

For many of us the quiet of the library is a wonderful retreat from the stress and overload of the day. While the solitude is good at times, don't overlook the chance to make new friends, whether it be the librarian and his staff, at lectures, joining in the various classes, and becoming active in the local writer's critique group. Opportunities to meet your neighbors in a comfortable and welcoming setting is a wonderful way to get out their to spread your wings and be social.

  1. Lovely post, sadly it's a case now of 'use them or lose them with libraries.
    I think they offer far more opportunities over in the States than most of them do here in the UK

  2. Hi! Popping in from the A-Z. How I love libraries - like you do. The peace and the knowledge that you're surrounded by books is so reassuring. Sadly I live now in Portugal where there aren't any (or not many - and they don't have the same atmosphere).

  3. I love libraries. Wish they had more around the area.,
    Happy A-Zing!

  4. Libraries and librarians are my friends. They help me find books from all over the U S if they don't have them available.
