I live quite close to my local library and a twenty minute drive to the next ( larger ) one so there are a number of activities i can do there- adult coloring club, book club, senior games, computer courses, outings etc. Most are completely free, the outings sometimes have a charge but transport is free for over fifties.
There's free wifi and loads of computers, talks on all manner of issues. And of course the books, newspapers and dvds.
Many of the libraries ( and schools and other public buildings ) had soup kitchens here over the summer for children. Poverty is becoming a huge issue in the USA.
The children programs are always good, reading, music and stuff like petting zoo, actors, crafts, lego etc etc
I don't actually attend many book clubs, i am usually in too much pain to sit for an hour ( i reserve my energy for earning! ) but i read the books and enjoy them, and if i feel well go to the discussion!
running thing now and will be busy tonight to put some tiles into the bathroom....I have yet to decide do I want a T-bone or brats for dinner tonight?tough choices....
Cleaner is here!! Called to say he was running a bit late - impressive then showed up exactly when he said he would. Looked at rooms and gave me price slightly lower than what was quoted on phone. Admitted he may not be able to get all stains out but said he'd do his best. A great start !!
