5 Library Card Benefits

Inspired by the library scene in "Hidden Figures."

As tax payers we have access to free information and resources at our local libraries. Here are five ways we take advantage of library cards.

1. No Age Requirement

Our two and a half year old recently got her own library card. Now she enjoys all the benefits the rest of the family does.

2. Books on Hold

We love using the library’s website to find new reads and reserve them. The next time we visit the library, we present our card to the circulation desk and they hand us a pile of new books.

3. Tickets & Passes

Get free and discounted museum passes and tickets to local attractions like the Freedom Trail.

4. Get Familiar with Technology

Call me old school, but I want our girls to be able to use a mouse and keyboard. Using their library card, we can borrow a laptop or use the desktops.

5. Hoopla

Hoopla is an online library of music, movies, television, audio and ebooks. Although the catalog is a little limiting, I have found a few gems.

Happy reading! Until next time….

Peace & Love,
