Ready to bid farewell to the monotonous corporate halls and grey cubicles? Cozy up to one of our coworking spaces to kick start 2019.
According to Time.com, "in 2017, there were 57.3 million freelance workers in the U.S., and 542,000 were members of coworking spaces...By 2020, it is projected that 50% of corporations will have their own coworking spaces."
Since it's sounding more and more like coworking will become part of your work life at some point, we thought we'd give you a little inside scoop on our favorite library coworking spaces.
From farmhouse style tables to high speed Wi-Fi, comfortable seating and collaborative meeting spaces, each of our library locations has been designed and renovated with busy, on-the-go professionals and entrepreneurs in mind.
While we may not offer swanky perks like beer on tap or ping-pong tables, our spaces are totally FREE, available as needed and come with the pretty sweet bonus of highly-trained staff who are happy to assist you.
Since we're all for keeping it brief, here are four of our favorite spaces for re-energizing your creative juices and kick starting the new year.
1. Laptop Bar, North Main
Looking for a space that doesn't feel like your dad's office? Get inspired by the vibrancy of North Main! Located in the heart of the library, the laptop bar is one of the most coveted seats in the house and is especially close to the printer.
2. Business, Careers and Research Center, Main
Located a stones throw away from the former Coworking Center, the Business, Careers and Research Center offers a plethora of seating options and endless electrical outlets! With highly-trained staff at the ready, you can really make this space work for you.
3. Laptop Bar, Sandhills
Perfect for innovators, Sandhills' laptop bar is located on the First Level and boasts laptops for checkout, comfortable seating options and a great view of the library's patio. Plus it's adjacent to the Makerspace so your tinkering needs are also covered.
4. Meeting Spaces, St. Andrews
Need a smidge more privacy? Snag one of the glass-walled meeting spaces at St. Andrews. The natural light paired with a great view of the community gardens will certainly make for a nice change of scenery.
Need a little more structure in your life? We offer a variety of meeting and study spaces for use by community groups, non-profit agencies and other organizations. Make a reservation, here.

I love a good YA series or anything DIY related—especially if it involves old houses or overgrown gardens.
