Let’s Read: Coastal Bend Libraries Round-up


Libraries have to be the most underrated resource for parents. Before having kids, I never realized home much I would appreciate and rely on our local libraries here in the Coastal Bend.

Between the ability for my kids to have a revolving door of books all year round that does not cost us money, and all the events they offer year-round that give us a budget-friendly list of things to do; they really deserve more credit!

If you have not yet tapped into this extensive resource as a parent I HIGHLY encourage you to find your local library on the list and take your kids for a visit. This is especially useful as the temperatures start to climb as we inch closer to summer. Also, be sure to keep an eye on our Monthly Events guide where we list MANY events held by the local libraries for kids of all ages each week.

Below is a list of all the public libraries in the Coastal Bend, take a look at the list and find your local library and make it a goal to visit all the libraries on the list!
