Where else in Saratoga Springs, or in any city for that matter, can one take a cutting-edge computer class, check out a few of the latest bestsellers (or buy them used for a song in the Book Bag!), have a meal, and wrap up the day listening to an excellent ensemble, catching a dance recital, or practicing mindful, guided meditation? For under ten dollars? Saratoga Public Library is outstanding in their service to the Saratoga Springs Community.
The Saratoga Springs Public Library more than lives up to it’s mission statement! You literally don’t have to leave the building to find all of the above and more at your disposal. For example, today our children can read aloud while a fully certified, non-judgemental therapy dog lays and listens at their feet. Teens are welcome to expand their computer skills for school as well, while the over-eighteen set benefits from updating their skills for the 20th century (ahem…that would be me). Free of charge, and first-come, first-serve.
So helpful in today’s economy, these invaluable services demostrate what community is all about. Speaking of community, there are three spacious rooms for the public’s use; they are often booked so plan in advance if you’d like to reserve one. Need I mention what a beautiful building this is as well?
The long winter will be here soon, and this library will be a welcome, and useful haven indeed. Wallets optional…..how very refreshing (But do bring your library card!) We are indeed lucky to have SSPL in Saratoga Springs!
