I am so thankful I have rediscovered the library. So many people spend so much money purchasing an e-reader or buying books, and I don’t mind support authors once in a while, but the library is so free! It allows me to read so much more on a budget.
Many of the Capital Region’s local libraries are quite beautiful. The architecture of Troy’s library is a stunning marble creation, and the stained glass windows are works of art. Cohoes beautiful brick library contains a gigantic replica of a Mastodon, much like the one found in the city in 1866.
I would like to visit all of the libraries in the area, and I am well on my way. I find this to be a great and free way to get to know many communities in the Capital Region, while sustaining a love of reading of course.
