If you have not had an opportunity to visit the “pearl” of Norwalk yet, you should make plans to visit the Norwalk Public Library soon. Far from the dusty, sleep-inducing libraries you may remember from your youth, today’s library has numerous programs and activities all designed to educate, engage, excite, entertain and encourage participation in your community. This weekend, as we celebrate National Read Across America Day on March 2, visit the Norwalk Public Library and learn more about what the library has to offer near your Norwalk, CT apartment.
For instance, did you know that the library allows members to check out free or reduced price admission passes to 15 state museums and attractions? All you have to do is show your library card and “check” them out just like a book.
This season’s most widely attended workshops are the free tax prep classes sponsored by AARP on Saturdays. All ages can play chess on Saturdays from 12 to 5 p.m. and you can try out the FREE Zumba and mediation classes (for teens and adults) on Monday nights.
From free movie nights, to homework help for students to craft and storytime for small children, the Norwalk Public Library has it all! There’s assorted lecture series throughout the year and community panel discussions with local officials and industry experts on current topics. Here you’ll find book clubs for all ages, health & fitness workshops, computer instruction and introduction to popular programs. For a full calendar of upcoming events and more information on the library, visit www.nowalklib.org.
Luckily for the residents of apartments at Morningside Gardens on Prospect Street, the Norwalk Public Library is located just a few blocks away on Belden Avenue. For more information on these beautiful apartments, call 203-325-3848 or visit www.CTBestApts.com.
