Default Your local public library is a great resource...

Hi Gordon,

I've been checking out my local libraries lately... It's been a while since I've done so!

They are great resources!

First, if you can work from a laptop, they can be a great place to work...

Second, they also (often) have private rooms you can use and book. You can use them to make private phone calls, Skype / Zoom calls, and so on, as well as have real-life meetings or video meetings...

Another benefit... as you're walking around the library, sometimes you spot interesting books and magazines, which can give you new ideas!

I was recently leafing through an issue of Popular Mechanics at the library, to see what ads are in there... (Wow, nothing like the old days, I gotta say... those were good days for those of us who like direct-response ads!)

Thanks for the reminder, Gordon!

In fact, last night, I discovered that there's a library in my suburb I didn't even know about! It's in a part of the suburb a long way away from me, a part I don't go to normally... So I thought I'd check it out...

The library was very small... About the size of a large living room! I had never seen such a small library...

Then I went to a different library. This library is actually in the "next" suburb, but it's actually a much closer distance to my house than the one I just mentioned. This has to be one of the nicest suburban public libraries I've ever come across...

I was there at night, but during the day, one full wall of the library consists of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking an artificial lake, full of ducks and so on... In the same building is a pleasant art gallery, and a fantastic cafe... The whole complex is an absolutely wonderful place to be...

Best wishes!


P.S. Here's a view of the lake, from inside the library - Wheelers Hill Library - that I found online...

It is maybe 10 x 12, or 120 Sq. Ft.
