While local libraries are always a great place to read, study, or relax, there is so much more to them than meets the eye.

Lubbock libraries are constantly hosting a variety of fun events, especially for kids. There are multiple public libraries in the Hub City, including Mahon Library (1306 9th Street), Godeke Branch Library (5034 Frankford Avenue), Groves Library (5520 19th Street), and Patterson Branch Library (1836 Parkway Drive).

Each one has their own variety of events for the whole family. Some of those events include classic story time, musical performances, educational events, dancing, magic shows, crafting, Nerf wars, and more. A full list of these events can be found on the City of Lubbock’s official website.

Along with these events, all four Lubbock libraries have been made official ‘Cooling Centers’. This means that they are a safe place to come cool off in the hot weather. They serve as these Cooling Centers during their normal operating hours, providing water, air conditioning, free WiFi, and charging stations.

This is a great way to get out of the sun, enjoy what the libraries have to offer, and get some more reading in.

It is also important to always support your local libraries so they can continue to provide the amenities to the city. So, check out some of their events, go grab a new book to read, or show them some love in any other way you can. I’m sure you’ve been looking for an excuse to start reading again too, so why not take this as a sign?
