Editorial: Check Out The Library

With all of the advancements in technology, it is easy to forget about all of the services offered by public libraries. After all, there is virtually a wealth of information literally at the fingertips of anyone with a tablet, smartphone or computer with Internet access. However, what can get lost in all the technology, is how much public libraries have to offer and especially both branches of the Massapequa Public Library.

I recently stopped by the library and was amazed at all that is offered. There are seminars and classes to take advantage of as well as fun activities. There is a wealth of books that can be perused without the need for downloading. There are also many magazines (remember those?) and newspapers to enjoy.

For those who are locked into the information age, there are computers for residents to make use of and there is also free wifi available without the requirement of a purchasing an overpriced cup of coffee. And the website is fantastic. When at home, take a quick stop at the library’s website (www.massapequalibrary.org) and you will be amazed at all the information that is available.

As we rapidly advance through the 21st century, there is still a lot of value in what libraries have to offer. And in Massapequa, we are fortunate to have a library that provides so much.
