This week is National Library Week. I live near an excellent Library and decided to spend the day indulging in their world of information, education and technology. I grabbed a table, fired up the laptop and started my morning routine. It’s probably not much different than most. With a hot cup of coffee nearby, I flipped through the usual websites. Already being at the library, I decided to checkout their website (citruslibraries.org) as well. I’ve been to it many times in the past.
The site has a calendar displaying several educational courses taught at no charge. They offer both a beginner and intermediate Excel class. They also offer different types of writing courses. I thoroughly enjoy both of those subjects. I took a stroll through the aisles. I flipped through a few books; I looked at the different displays and rooms within the library. A large computer room is towards the front. Private conference rooms are near the back. They can be reserved and used for studying. The staff was very knowledgeable. Their creativity and demeanor instilled a positive and friendly atmosphere. The high-speed wireless internet and decent selection of books was also beneficial. I finished the day studying at Lynda.com in a tranquil environment.
