Public Libraries: They save you money...

Frugality: 7 Ways Your Public Library Can Help You During A Bad Economy

Even as a librarian, I have a hard time remembering all of these. Public libraries save you money. We all get in the mode of thinking that "if I'm not paying for it, then it's no good" but that's not always true. Besides, you are paying for it. It's a miniscule part of your tax bill but it's there, so why not borrow a book instead of buying it, rent a movie from your library instead of Blockbuster, or see what programs your library is putting on for your kids or for yourself instead of paying hundreds of dollars on camps and clubs and whatnot.
