We are heading to the library for Frugal Date Friday! Get ready to see what your local library has to offer!

In preparation for your date, check for guest speakers or events going on. You may be able to attend an event where you can hear from an author and even get a book signed.

To start, you can spend time showing each other your favorite children’s books from when you were kids. It’s a great way to share childhood memories and learn more about one another.

Next, libraries often have cool collections of old newspapers and maps too. You can learn more about the history of your town together.

You can check out a few books to take home and read together or even movies to watch. Head to a local park and spend time popcorn reading a book together.

      When my husband and I were dating before we were married, I found out he was not very familiar with Dr. Seuss. I had always gotten a kick out of Dr. Seuss books when I was a small child. An English teacher, I jokingly told my husband-to-be that his education in literature was not complete until he had read Dr. Seuss. I took him to the basement of the local library where I read to him The Sneetches and Other Stories, which includes “What Was I Scared of?” (one of my favorites) and “Too Many Daves,” much to the amusement of the librarian. I also read him Hop on Pop, The ABC Book, Fox in Sox, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. We laughed and had a good, silly time. We still refer to these books at times and have good laughs over them. Every time I tell my husband that I am going on an errand, for example, he just laughs. The word errand always makes him think of the story What Was I Scared Of? which has one of the characters, “I,” always going on errands during which he runs into the other character, “the pale green pants.” It’s not just an appreciation for silly books like Dr. Seuss that we now have in common but also theological works that we love to read together and discuss. Books are a great way to enjoy things and think about things together. It facilitates a “meeting of the minds” and a growth in unity as husband and wife.

      If you live in Spartanburg you should check out Music Sandwiched In at the main library on most 2nd and 4th Wed over lunchtime. Pack your lunch and come for a free concert.
