The internet is back! Apparently, the line that connected to our house had been chewed through by squirrels. Anyways…
Last week I wanted to stay in. Luckily, you can stay in and have fun without resorting to musty board games or movies you’ve seen a thousand times. Albany Public Library has an extensive movie collection, including new releases. Why spend money on Netflix or Redbox when you can get movies for free at the library? Of course, you have to have a library card, which is free if you live in Albany or Rensselaer County. All you need is a photo ID and a recent piece of mail as proof of residence.
With your library card you can check out five feature films and five TV shows and documentaries at once. That’s a lot of free stuff! Mr. Free Albany and I checked out a bunch of DVD’s on both of our cards. Thanks to the library, we’ve watched a lot of amazing movies that we wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
If you’re into doing free stuff (like I am) then the Albany Public Library is a great resource. There are movies and obviously a lot of great books, but there are also magazines, playaways, computers, and a lot of great programs. Everyone can find something to do at the library. Children’s story time, adult computer classes, tax assistance, pilates, book groups, and so much more are all available to the public for free. Visit their calendar of events at http://evanced.albanypubliclibrary.org/eventcalendar.asp?ln=ALL to find a program for you!
