The Third Place

     Is the library your 'third place?'
     Your third place is where you go to spend time...someplace in addition to your home and your workplace.  For some people this might be Starbucks or other local business.  For some it might be the library.
     Ideally, a 'third place' should be free or inexpensive, accessible, close by, involve regulars, be welcoming and comfortable; food and drink are not essential but are nice.  You can find old and new friends in your third place.
     Libraries have been doing this; libraries can be a community center engaging you with others in a public place.
    We'd love to see you in our third place!
