I love reading but I can't support my habit by buying all the books, since I can go through over 40 a year. I don't understand why more people don't use their local libraries, my library card is the most used card on my key chain. Not only can you go into the library and browse the shelves, but you can order the books online. For those of you that are computer savvy or don't understand the dewy decimal system, holding books online is a no brainer. I am lucky that I live in a populated area that gets along well with our fellow towns in the county - that our libraries are all part of one...so there may be times the books are sent from our neighbors town and I pick up from my 'home' location. Not only can you do this with books, but with DVDs...I even cancelled my netflix subscription when I realized that I can get it from the library for free. So while I don't understand why more people don't utilize this town service, I am happy that I our wait lists aren't too long.
