Go to your local library.
Sick of hearing a thousand bad versions of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”? Go to the library. The sound you’ll hear most prominently is silence.
Sick of malls and buying stuff and being reminded to buy stuff? Go to the library. It’s one of the very few places that doesn’t want your money. It wants you.
Sick of crowds, small talk, socializing? Go to the library. Crowded it ain’t. Talking is discouraged.
Visit the library instead of the bookstore or the coffee shop. Libraries are in as much danger of becoming extinct as newspapers are.
You’ll be mentally, emotionally, and spiritually rejuvenated while you support your community at the same time.
And there’s free Wi-Fi.
Whatever you choose to do, and I mean this literally and sincerely, take care of yourselves.
