Public libraries can often go underappreciated in the days of Netflix, Spotify and Kindle. But that doesn't mean they should go unnoticed. As many public libraries grapple with how to stay relevant in the digital age, a few are standing out for their unique offerings that provide their community with much more than books.
Using the public library as a metaphor for how I want to live my life, I'm going to try to be more aware of my own deadline even if the date remains unknown. Just as I read library books with more focus and intention because of their due date, I will try to live my life with similar focus and intention because I, too have a due date.
