Do you think your public library is only good for picking up a few novels or books to read? The library is more than just a bookstore. You can pick up things like free passes to museums, which many libraries have on a first-come, first-served basis. Want to see a constellation on a clear night? You can check out telescopes. Want to try an unusual cake recipe? Borrow cake pans and other baking supplies. Want to unplug and do a fun activity with the family? Most libraries have board games, puzzles and other games you can borrow. Some public libraries even have professional clothing like neckties, briefcases and purses to help people look their best for job interviews.
