Libraries are fabulous and keep getting better! Our local library also offers online career testing and resume help, free (!) tickets to area museums, a low-cost printing press and countless activities for kids through adults. And more! (I'm sure I'm forgetting something . . . )

Oh, I so love books. I have a mini Library back home and have a collection of books, magazines and newspaper clippings organized according to subjects. For this year, I have purchased more than 50 books but still unread as I dont have time to browse them. I used to read books a lot but since I got this eye condition, I just buy without reading..

I bought an inexpensive e-reader and now download books from the library. The library in my area has an extensive list of fiction and non-fiction books and all the new releases are now available. I don't have to go near the library except to renew my card once a year. The library is "open" 24 hours a day online.

Our library in the greater Atlanta area has a computer link on their website to the Galileo system so we can access newspapers, magazines, journals, and more plus a language learning program called Mango I haven't tried yet.

My library also offers movies to rent and books on CD. I like to listen to books on CD/Tape when I am on long driving trips.

Libraries are fantastic! I stay up late reading those books really fast. Lately, though, my kids have started to use the library, and have started to rack up fines. We are taking a little break while we build up skills in managing and keeping track of loaned items!

I'm on a library moratorium at the moment. I love the place, but end up borrowing about eight books at once. Even more since I discovered that I could search the online catalogue at home and order books from my Amazon wish list. The problem with this is that I already have a backlog of books that I bought or got as presents, so I have to go through them first. Funny thing is, I can't even let myself go into the library to study, as I know I'll get sucked in and come out with like ten books. In short, libraries rock!

I have a college textbook right here that I borrowed, for free of course, from my local library. I have it until November and if I am very lucky no one else will want to borrow it between now and the end of the semester. This is a $50+ book and all my textbooks are expensive. Frequently I am able to borrow them, and also any supplemental reading books (quite often this is the difference between us A students and the rest of the pack-we read the extra stuff and it shows in our grades) then I can return my brand-new textbook, possibly even for a profit, since it has never been used. Each semester I have to buy my textbooks because I cannot count on getting them from the library or keeping them for the whole semester. I am very careful not to underline and use Post-it tabs which leave no mark on pages. I buy my textbooks brand-new because I can resell them for close to if not higher than the original price at

And yet, in Toronto they have elected politicians who want to close libraries, because they think (incorrectly) that there are more libraries than donut shops. Seriously, I couldn't make up anything this stupid.

A key factor in picking our house was that it was within walking distance of the library. I calculated that if I had had to buy or rent every book and DVD that I get from the library (where I go at least twice a week) for the past year, I would have spent over $10,000 - and that's if I got used books. (I read a lot.) I love my library - makes me feel like my property taxes aren't wasted.

I am a liberal Art Major--what I can't find at the library I can find at the public library and let me tell you they usually have the books I need for classes. I save a lot of $$$ along with checking out Google books for free.
