NHBPM – Why The Hell Not!

Why The Hell Not!  are  posts  I’m going to do from time to time to remind, not only those of us with chronic illnesses, but for all of us to do something for ourselves.  Something you may not have thought of doing or something you have wanted to do for a long time. Nothing is too silly or frivolous. The time to do something for yourself is now because…why the hell not!

Rediscover Your Local Library

Our community libraries are changing and evolving just like the rest of us. They are no longer just books in a building. Today’s libraries offer so much more. Music, e-books, audio books, events, workshops, computers and internet access. If you are disabled or are homebound, libraries will also assist you with books for the visually impaired or have books delivered to you home. My library also lets people borrow passes to the local museums, pedometers so you can see how many steps and how far you walk and meters to measure the electricity output in your home. Our libraries, like our communities, are changing to fit the needs of the people.

  1. I was so excited to find out my library takes requests on books to buy.
    Both my husband and I have suggested books, and they bought them!

    Your library loans out a lot more stuff that our library.

    We can get books (of course), videos (movies), magazines, and some ebooks.
    They do have some good classes, and groups. But nothing like some of the things you mentioned.

    Have fun at your local library!
