    What about listening to books on the computer….Don’t forget you need a library card to do that!!

    That is certainly worth clarifying… Using your library card number, some libraries allow you to download free audio books from online. Mom (aka Jo) likes to listen to books while she works and sews. She has an MP3 player that is compatible with WMA files, but more MP3-format books are becoming available. You can always listen to books over your computer with free software. This works great for someone like Mom who works on her website during the day, but is not so great for when she moves out to the kitchen or her sewing room.

    I, too, love the public library. You can get so many things there — sometimes even computer programs, art prints, games, puzzles, etc. It really can be a complete entertainment and educational one-stop shop. Libraries aren’t just about books any more (though I love books!).

    One good tip is to get in good with your librarian. Do this by simply being truly kind and friendly. Take a bit of time to greet the librarian with a smile and make a bit of small talk and/or ask for suggestions. As you develop a relationship with the librarian, he/she will likely let you know when new items that you’ll be interested in will be in, and may even order items that you request.
