I think it’s wonderful that we live in a time when libraries aren’t just about books. There is so much there to take advantage of. Computers are just one aspect. Do you remember when computers cost thousands of dollars? It wasn’t that long ago. Few folks had email and Internet service was kind of expensive.
Now you can walk into your local library, plunk your butt down and use a computer for free. Free! Seriously, that’s pretty amazing. Yes, you’re limited in a lot of what you’re permitted to do, the library has to protect it’s investment after all, but still, that’s pretty cool. Where else can you go to find someone who will let you just walk in and start using their computer and Internet connection?
So while it’s on the frustrating side to have to go to the library – still it’s one of those things where I can say in all honesty, “Thank you Lord, for the opportunity and freedom to do that.”
Anything you’re feeling particularly grateful for this week?
