Sean recently found an investing book that he was tempted to buy but de-cluttered his house and made an oath not to own anymore hard-cover books. He loves reading hard-covered books but usually they just collect dust after being read, never to be opened again. He then realized that’s what libraries are for! He could go get a book he wanted to read and give it back when he’s done for no cost at all!
However, the book Sean wanted wasn’t in his local library but after poking around the website, there was a process to request a book purchase. After requesting the book, they actually bought it! Woohoo!
The library also offers eBooks, audio books and movies as well. They have computers to access, conference rooms and you can print documents. Sometimes we forget about the public services right in front of us.
