Paradise Will Be a Kind of Library

Yesterday was #WorldBookDay, so I’ve got books on the brain–as per usual. I read a lot, and last summer I decided it would be much more cost effective if I visited the library instead of buying my books. Why buy a book you’re not sure you’ll even like when you can just get it for free?

My library of choice is the Johnson City Public Library. I checked out Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner yesterday after one of my favorite actresses tweeted about it. We’re blessed in this area to have such a great library with a wide selection of books.

Books aren’t all the JCPL has to offer, however. The library also hosts programs for children all the way up to seniors, including classes, books clubs and lectures. It’s an invaluable part of our community because everything that they do is free to the public.

JCPL’s full event calendar can be found here. If the JCPL doesn’t have what you’re looking for, trying checking out one of the other 16 branches of the Organization of Watauga Libraries. I reiterate: free books and free access to arts education! Support your local library!
