Carpe Weekend: Love Your Library

Most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘Carpe Diem’, or ‘Seize the day’.  Yet rather than seizing every day, often it is only on the weekend that we feel we have time to stop, collect ourselves and breathe.  This feature is designed to help with that: a small suggestion, tip or hint for you to try (if you wish!) over the weekend.  Maybe it will make a difference to your life, maybe it won’t, maybe it will prompt some other thoughts.  Enjoy – and seize your weekend!

This weekend, Im taking my niece to the municipal library.  I love libraries: all that creativity, all that inspiration, all that knowledge, all for free!  As well as books, you can often get magazines, films and music.  If you havent been to your local one in a while (or ever!) then why not call in this weekend?  Pick up a title that youve been meaning to read for a while, or explore the shelves and try something completely different from usual book choice.  Whilst youre there, check out the noticeboard for forthcoming events. 

You might be surprised as to what takes your fancy.  You could learn something new about your local community.  You may even discover something new about yourself.
