"The public library is still one of our all-time favorite places
for a free diversion. If you haven't been lately, dust off your card. It's
your ticket to mounds of free books, magazines, CDs and movies. Many libraries also offer free lectures, book readings, children story hours and community clubs to residents."
Not only does the Troy Public Library offer all of those things, we also offer many electronic services that don't even require a physical vist to the library, including language learning, videos on demand, and downloadable ebooks and audiobooks.
