Phil is a hobbyist and the Library offers resources and opportunities for him to explore new hobbies. Phil is an active user of the Library’s growing “Library of Things” collection, which allows him to borrow non-traditional items for recreational purposes, such as a fishing pole, ukulele, and nature cam. Intrigued by the diverse offerings, Phil recently checked out a selection of classic record albums, eager to immerse himself in the nostalgic sound of vinyl. Phil also loves to garden and the vast array of gardening books available at the Library have helped him transform his backyard garden into a spectacular oasis.
