The library in tough times

I’ve written about my respect/ love of libraries. They are great resource for people from all walks of life. Over at the Consumerist today, there was a post about how the library is a great resource in tough times.

They are:

You can get pretty much any book at the library

Yes, we have movies

Kids Activities

Save Money and maybe your life!

Make new friends

Find a new job

Libraries listen to consumers!

The post touts that many libraries have inter-library loans, rent videos very cheaply ($1-2) or for fear and have a plethora of services and activities.

Many libraries also have passes to local attractions such as museums or aquariums.

So whether times are tough or you’re flush, the local library is a gem.
