Libraries are amazing resources. Yes, you can rent books and movies and music. Though many people never do. But there’s so much more your library can offer you. If I weren’t a patron, I never would have found out about Pittsburgh’s RADical Days. Some of my family members would have gone years without internet access if it weren’t for their local library. And then there’s all the amazing programs they offer, specifically for kids.
Just in the next week, these are all the programs the Carnegie Library system is offering:
- Terrific Tales for Toddlers
- Pre-K Story Time
- Family Story Time
- Jazz for Tots
- Celebrate: Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!
- Saturday Stories and Crafts

That’s insane to me. Libraries are such a great community resource. It would be foolish to not utilize them to their fullest potential. There’s also a ton of programs for adults; from book clubs to crafts to reentering the workforce, there’s bound to be something that fits your interests or a horizon that you’d like to broaden. I promise you your local library runs some sort of programs that match you or your families needs or interests, too. It’s not limited to the Carnegie Library system.
