Day Trips in South Texas: Local Libraries Offer More Than Books
Meet friends or enjoy a quiet time

Medina EC participate in story Time at El Progreso Memorial Library in Uvalde. If your local library could benefit from having cooperative staff visit during a planned activity, contact the cooperative at MyCoop@MedinaEC.org to see if we can help.

Some of us can remember getting our first library card, the excitement of choosing a book—or a handful—and the stress we felt if we were late to return them. The days of library cards haven’t gone away, and neither have your library fines. But the role libraries play in our communities has evolved.

From story time to community meetings, your local library can be a great place to meet friends and neighbors while finding a good book or two. And when you look past the stacks of books, you’ll most likely find computers, printers, audio books, children’s activity centers and more. In fact, at least one of the libraries in our area (Uvalde) offers 3D printing services!

For the most part, the library can be a quiet escape. A place to find a good book and get lost in a story, or space to get some work done without worrying about pressure to buy a book or an overpriced coffee.

But the best thing about your local library? It’s FREE. You can visit and use most of the services offered at no charge. If you’re not a resident in the city or town a library serves, you may be charged a small fee for a card, but it’s worth it to have access to a large number of reading material, computers, printers and more!

The possibilities are endless at your local library! Visit today!
