Need to save money??

If you, like me, like to read and you would LIKE to save money. Go to the local library, get a library card and ENJOY!!!! The Torrance library, Katy Gessert Civic Center Library (KGCCL), located right on Torrance Blvd next to the City Hall, is a beautiful, clean, two story testament to the committment to community that our town has. I have a list of  wants on my want to buy book list and just remembered, why not go to the library and check out these books then take them back when I'm done?? I am constantly trying to get rid of books I've purchased and what better way than to NOT BUY THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!

The library is also a hub of activity for a community. There are six libraries located in, and around, Torrance. Pretty good for a pretty small community. We can find out about local speakers, famous authors coming to talk about a book they've recently written, or about the subject of the book or their life that made them famous in the first place. If you don't have A/C at home, like many Torrance-ites dont, that's just another reason to explore.

So go find that book, get a comfy seat, sit back and relax, and enjoy YOUR tax dollars at work at our local public library. In case you didn't know, that includes: Movies (DVDS, VHS, etc), audio books (books on CD/Tape) magazines, as  well as our favorite, the book.

See ya at the library!

I'm so busy I don't have time to read these days. But I know that packin a lunch saves me a bunch.

Learning is a great thing and reading is the major part of that so lets keep libraries open.

Reading is so relaxing. But what to do if you bought a book and you don't like it or just don't want to read it a second time?! That's what happend to me so many times. I started to ask my friends and some of my neighbors if they are interested in swapping books. And at first it worked but they are not so big book lovers as me. So I tried to barter them online on barterquest.com (best site that worked for me and it's free). Now I can just swap books with so many people. I love it and it saves me money because I don't have to pay anything :-)
