Have You Checked Out Your Library Lately?

Which Library Do You Love?!

Have you been to your local library lately?  Central Iowa libraries are one of the best free resources available to parents.  You can borrow books, DVDs, CDs, audio books, magazines and Ebooks at no cost!  That’s right for free.  If you are a parent who is constantly renting movies for the kiddos or buying new books at the bookstore this could save you some major cash.  Plus you can pick up some great things for yourself as well.  Here are just a few things at your local library that could make your life easier:

  • Parenting Books – Tons of books out there on this subject
  • Cookbooks – Find recipes for quick, make ahead or crock pot meals that will give you more time for other fun stuff (like laundry)
  • Music CDs – There’s no better way to relieve some stress than to rock out with your favorite music
  • DVDs – Movies for veg out time when the kids are asleep or perhaps a Pilates or Yoga video for stress management

Also check your local library for classes and story time for your kids.  Here is a list of local libraries:
