I confess, I have a relative who asks me every time I see him, “how are all the books?” I try my best to remind him that while books are great, libraries have so much more to offer. This week, during National Library Week, we are celebrating how your library is a place to connect to the world around you. For example, do you ever stop and think of the many different ways you can use the library to improve your health? Listed below are some reminders.
