Look Around Lubbock: reading at home

Posted: Updated:

Just because you're home and keeping your social distance, doesn't mean you have to be bored.

"Come in, you can get a book, you can get multiple books, we have movies, have a movie marathon, we have cd's and records, you can listen to a record for an hour," Josey Books & Records store manager Missy Brinson said.

Josey Books & Records is open for you to browse from a number of aisles for things to keep you busy. It is limiting how many people can be in the store at once.

"From the youngest child that's barely learning how to read to the oldest person that wants to read something they haven't read in years, we have anything... all types of books for anyone that wants to read," Brinson said.

Brinson encourages parents to read with their children while they're home.

"You get this new perspective of how your kid learns," Brinson said.

Stacy McKenzie, Director of Library Service for the City of Lubbock said reading is an easy way to keep kids busy.

"Reading is a great escape for kids, it helps stimulate their minds, it helps to keep them learning, helps keep them with activities," McKenzie said.

She advocates for people to venture out from their usual genre.

"It really gets people excited about reading a new, different genre maybe a new author, maybe open up some new ideas and can really be a really different escape for them if they're used to reading one kind of type book," McKenzie said.

Hoping to make books accessible to everyone, the city libraries are offering curbside pick up.

"We'll pull those books for you, we'll have them ready for you within the hour and you can come pick them up," McKenzie said.
