The week of April 8-14 is National Library Week. I am blessed to live in a city with three branches of the Livermore library. They all have PCs available for public use on a first come, first served basis. Livermore’s Civic Center Library is the one closest to my house and where I spend lots of time browsing.
The library is warm and inviting, offering a readers’ room, kids’ place, teen space, meeting rooms and exhibits, and a fine cafe. No matter how filled the parking lot is, when you walk inside you have to wonder where everyone is. It’s that spacious.
The Livermore Public Library encourages the development of a lifelong interest in reading and learning by youth and adults, provides materials and services of popular interest, supports the educational needs of the community, furnishes timely, accurate information, and builds cultural awareness and enrichment. I have attended many events at the library, from musical groups, to readings by actors from Shakespeare Associates, to book signings. This is one of my favorite places to be.
