Right now, you might be picturing an older woman with her hair in a tight bun, spectacles, and a finger pressed firmly against her lips as she says “shush” in careful condescension. Well, it’s time to throw that old stereotype in the garbage. Most libraries offer much more than you imagine, including story times, music, and other classes. And yes, you can still borrow reading material (both print and digital).
