We are fortunate to live surrounded by libraries. All those books - and programs, too. The programs listed below are free and include computer classes, ESL sessions, and book discussion groups. They are different at each library. Don't forget that each library has a "Friends" group devoted to supporting the library and you are invited to participate.
