We love our library! Lots of free books, movies, games, magazines, puppets (for the kids), lectures and exhibits.
We live in a large suburban area, so we take advantage of other towns' libraries. The two largest ones near us have monthly exhibits, film and lecture series, tons of DVDS to get for free (we pay $1/DVD at our hometown library), and boatloads of magazine subscriptions that I would never pay for. Not to mention free Internet.
Similarly, our local park districts offer a lot of low cost options--classes, field trips and great nearby facilities to explore.
I like the idea of being a tourist in your hometown. I bet the library has brochures, tour books and the like to guide you to local attractions.
Good luck and enjoy!
