The new black card comes from your local library…

Borrowing is a little different now. Did you know, with your library card you can check out a T-Mobile a WiFi HotspotΒ (good for road trips), a Museum PassΒ (that’s free entry for 2 adults and 2 children), and Cake Pans (yes, cake pans – can you say Darth Vader birthday cake?).

You can also learn to play the ukulele, get free seeds for your garden and enjoy free services such as Freegal Music and hoopla to enjoy thousands of titles – from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers.

Also, check out these free events for teens, tweens, and wee-ones.

In addition to swimming, take a look at bicycling, basketball, golf, flag football, model aircraft flying, model rocketry, indoor track, rock climbing, shooting range, skate parks, softball, tennis, pickleball, Lobo little league, and youth soccer.

And if none of those get your adrenalin going, you can always go for Xtreme Camp.
