Free Entertainment to Take Advantage of at Your Library

39079574_sYour local library has a number of options for free entertainment, and it goes well beyond just books. If you are the kind of person who doesn’t typically visit your city’s library, you might want to swing by to check out these free entertainment options.

Books – Both Traditional and Audio

No matter how easy it is to download an eBook, there is something about a hardcopy that is just more satisfying. Whether it is because you don’t have to worry about battery life or just like to have physical pages to turn, libraries have plenty of books to choose from. If you don’t have the time to read a book, check out the library’s audio book selection to listen to books on the go.


If you need music for your commute or workout, or you want to check out a new artist, CDs are one of the many free entertainment options available at libraries. Your library may also offer digital downloads of MP3s via their website so that you don’t even have to stop by the branch to get your music fix.

Magazines and Newspapers

Don’t have your own newspaper or magazine subscription? Check out what your library has to offer. From the latest local news to international magazines, you can discover the latest news on nearly any topic.

Movies and Shows

Movies and shows are one of the best forms of free entertainment at your local library that not many people take advantage of. Many independent and older movies cannot be downloaded from the streaming companies, like Hulu and Netflix. If you want something really unique, check out your local library’s selection.


Libraries are a great place to hangout. Some of them have cafes where you can sit and get work done as you enjoy a great treat and coffee for less than you can get at a place like Starbucks. Libraries also have regularly scheduled activities for all age groups. It is not only free entertainment, but a great opportunity to socialize. From story time for kids to free lessons for things like knitting and learning a foreign language, libraries all over have their own unique offerings. It’s well worth checking out what is going on at your local library.
