Globe Articles about the Library

EXPLORE YOUR LIBRARY

Planning on living to 100? In science labs all over the world, researchers are exploring ways to delay the effects of aging and extend our years of healthy life. Already, we’re living nearly three decades longer on average than our ancestors from a century ago.  If you are wondering what you might do with all that extra time…I have an idea. Volunteer!  Share your skills and your passion with others. It’s the closest thing to a silver bullet we have discovered for personal and societal well-being. A growing body of research tells us that those who volunteer have lower mortality rates and less depression, along with a greater sense of control over one’s life and higher rates of self-esteem and happiness.  I know from my own experience as I transitioned out of a career, I needed to give back – I needed to be needed.  I found it – at the Library!  I work one three hour shift each week. I shelve books, greet residents, check in and out books.  I am able to assist folks to find a book they want on our computer catalog.  I have made new friends.  I am needed. I have fun! Come in today and “Explore Your Library”!
