Thankful to Live in Round Rock ~ Day 14: Round Rock Public Library

We are so very blessed to live in such a great city – Round Rock is unique in that it’s big enough to have everything that we need, but still has that small town feel.  Many of you know, I started Round the Rock because I wanted everyone to know and take advantage of all the fun things there are to do here in the Rock.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to reflect on 30 things that make me Thankful to live in Round Rock.

30 Reasons why I’m Thankful to live in Round Rock
Day #14: Round Rock Public Library

RR Library
I feel that I can say this to y’all: We have the BEST Library in Central Texas.  Seriously, I think we do.  Fo so many reasons, I don’t even know where to start.
I had someone the other day call the Library a “dying media”.  As an avid reader, I was horrified.  So I asked her when the last time she had been to our library – it had been YEARS.  Clearly, she did not know:
  1. That you can “check out” books digitally with you Kindle, iPad, Nook, etc.  It’s SO easy to do and there are thousands of books to choose from.
  2. That you can download magazines for free onto your e-readers using Zinio.  Great magazines – It’s how I read Shape, O, and National Geographic each month.
  3. That the Library offers FREE seminars, classes, and clubs to adults each month – Yoga. Knitting. Computers. The list goes on and on.
  4. That the Library brings in an art collection each month for display.
  5. That the Library has some amazing special events for children of all ages – babies to Teens.  Each week is full of storytimes, Rockin’ Craft Club, book clubs, and more.
  6. That the Library hosts special events, like the upcoming International Games Day on Saturday, November 16.
  7. That the Library hosts a comprehensive Reading Program each summer – filled with challenges, movies, puppet shows, games, and more!
  8. That the Library has hundreds of DVDs to check out for FREE??  There are a TON for kids!!
  9. That the Library has the BEST employees – No mater how busy they are, they are always willing to help you find something you need, suggest a good book, or just welcome you and your family in.
Oh, and did I mention, they have books?? Lots of incredible books – I always go to the library’s two New Release shelves on the second floor – they always have interesting selections.

So, is the Library a dying media?  Absolutely not.  I have never been a part of a more active Library that pulls people in as well as they do.  I am so very thankful to have the Round Rock Public Library in our city.  

Just a small disclosure here – I am not receiving any financial compensation to tell you what I am thankful for in Round Rock. I am simply telling you about places, objects, & opportunities that have blessed me & my family.
