Confessions of a Library-aholic

We often think of the local library as a dusty, musty place with stacks of books and stern ladies always with a finger to their lips whispering Shhhh! And while it is true that libraries house mounds of books and they do appreciate your consideration of others and use of a "library voice," today's libraries offer much, much more!

So often we stick to the highways and follow our favorite familiar routes, or we trust our GPS to help us find our way from Point A to Point B. Once in a while, it’s fun to read a map and see what great places you’re missing!
