- Do We Still Need Libraries?
Living Dangerously … at the Library?
Of course, libraries are still needed! As an avid reader, I discovered the benefits of holding a library card from one of my co-workers. In this economy, we have to resort to more cost effective or even free alternatives to entertainment. I found that it was very easy for me to spend close to $100 on books every month. And, what do I do with most of these novels after reading them? They sit on a shelf, take up space, clutter a house and attracts dust.
You don't know for sure if you will even enjoy the book until you open to the first page. Now, if I find that I don't enjoy the book, I can turn it in the next day. I can borrow up to 50 books at one time. I was able to donate all of my books to the library for someone else to enjoy. There are many self enrichment courses and entertainment to take advantage of. Now, I save money by borrowing.
