HUNTINGTON, NY LIBRARY, a source for traveling seniors!!!Posted: June 14, 2017
There is no better place for the geezer when travelling than a public library and the Huntington Public Library in Huntington, Long Island can’t be beat.
It is open seven days a week and is located in the center of town. It has all the usual amenities including bathroom, free WiFi, copying machines, computers, e-mail stations, magazines, used book store and a big reference section.
Hard cover books are $1.00 and paperbacks are 50 cents.
In addition there are interesting public programs. Posted today on the bulletin board are:
“Women Pirates,” a lecture by Stony Brook University Professor, Tara Rider.
A mystery book discussion group
Drop-In Meditation program
Courses in Microsoft Programs
They also have a senior information center with information of interest to seniors; including bus schedules and senior programs.
You can read a half-dozen daily newspapers and probably 100 different magazines.
Across the street you can find coffee, breakfast, lunch and an assortment of shops.
Libraries are especially good if you are visiting family. They work, go to school, and generally have a life without you, so if you can get out of their hair and have an interesting day, it is a win-win situation.
