Taking Advantage of the Public Library

By
Real Estate Agent with Carolina One Real Estate

As everyone looks to cut corners financially, do not forget about the great resource we have here in Charleston County - our public library system. Here are a few great reasons to go to the library.

Why pay $4 for a movie rental when you can pick one up for free and keep it for a week at the library?

Why buy a new book when you can get it at the library for free?

There is free computer access at all locations.

There are great programs for children and adults - why spend $40 going to the movies when you can enjoy great stuff at the library for free.

Pick up books on tape and enjoy listening in your car.

You can read the paper there or browse just about any magazine you can think of.

Randall, this is a great reminder for people. I love the library for the workout videos/DVDs they have. I can try something different, if I don't like it I haven't spent any money.

You know, we've started doing more and more library time.  I think it is great for the kids too because they have to learn new research skills (simply the ones of finding a good book in a library is helpful!) 

It's funny too, since we've been going to the library more, they actually are reading more! Lately I've had to scold my 12 yr old for staying up past her bedtime - reading!

OH yea, my husband also has gotten some great books on CD.  He works in medical sales and is often in his car as much as 6 hrs a day... the books on CD are usually around $50 each at the book store.  What a find!
