When many people think of the local library, they recall the strict institution of bygone days. They imagine the librarian who doesn’t allow speaking, and the only thing that they have are books, so why go—especially now with books so readily available online? The simple answer is fun and the connections that you can make there. 

Long gone are the days of the strict institution 

Today's libraries have so much more to offer users. If you are new to a neighborhood, it should be one of the first places that you find and check out. In addition to the traditional books, they also offer movies, music, computer and internet usage, and printing and faxing services—to name a few.

During tax time the library can be one of your go-to places for finding the forms necessary for filing, and sometimes assistance in learning which ones you may need. When you are new to an area, libraries provide invaluable information about the area and keep you posted on upcoming events. Local publications such as the city update paper and local parenting magazine, usually found for free at the library, often contain announcements ranging from local events to road closures and even services provided by doctors and other trusted local professionals in the area. Knowing about local services makes the neighborhood feel less strange and gives you a little more comfort. 

Connections that can last a lifetime 

One of the best endeavors that contemporary libraries undertake is to provide classes and programs for the community. These can range from storytimes and playgroups to yoga and meditation to arts and crafts classes, and so much more. Of course, there are also book clubs and GED classes hosted, along with various technology classes available as well. In these environments, you can connect with folks that may have similar interests and desires, or people who have greater knowledge in something that you may want to grow in yourself. These are the types of connections that may very well last far longer than your participation in whatever class or program you started in. 

Find your local library today

If you might be one of those people that couldn't think of the library without hearing “Shhhhhh!” maybe it is time to give it a try again. You may find that you can’t live without it once you do. So find your local library and see what they have available for you!

Olga L. Rodriguez, Realtor I am a customer-service-oriented real estate agent who helps home buyers and sellers in Florida, in the cities of Miami, Kendall, Coral Gables, Hialeah, Palmetto Bay and Miami Beach. If you're looking for an agent with patience, perseverance, and a passion for helping people, you've just found her! My working experience I received my real estate license in 1986. Since that time I have worked in the real estate field both part time and full time. When raising my children I worked as a teacher and part time real estate agent. I have also worked as a real estate paralegal, and appraiser. Working as a teacher I learned the skills of patience, perseverance, and being organized. My paralegal experience allows me to efficiently explain legal documents to my clients. The knowledge that I gained from working as an appraiser allows me accurately price the homes of my sellers and advice my buyers on the price of their purchases. My love for math, negotiating, business and my passion for helping people has led to choose real estate as my preferred profession. As a realtor I can truly say, "I love my job”. What Makes Me Different from Other Agents Service: I strive to exceed my clients' expectations in all aspects of the real estate process by providing excellent customer service and effective negotiating practices. Education: Success in real estate starts with education. You have to understand the nuances of the local market, the dynamics of supply and demand, and how these things affect buyers and sellers. I make sure that my buyers and sellers are well informed at every step of the process, so they can make smart decisions. Contact: Buyers, sellers and renters have a lot of questions during their real estate transaction. I let them know what is happening every step of the way during their real estate transaction. I am available at all times and can be reached by phone, text, or email. A Smoother, Less Stressful Real Estate Experience Buying, selling or renting a home can be exciting, but it can also be stressful. That's why I work extra hard to keep my clients informed, and to make the process as smooth as possible. In my free time I enjoy traveling, visiting new cities, states and countries. I also enjoy swimming, cycling, and boating.
