Doing this Read 50 books in 2015 has given me an incentive to visit the local library again. I remember I used to LOVE going to the library because there was always something to read. I’ve compiled a list of 5 reasons why you should go to your local library.
1. It’s free!
Seriously, what better reason to go to the library – it does not cost you anything! The only time you would have to spend money is maybe if you’re late in returning your books or if you’re printing something. Other than that, you have thousands of material you can check out for research and personal purposes.
2. Free WIFI!
Yes a lot of coffee shops now have free WIFI however, 9 out of 10 probably requires you to purchase something or if you have conscience you may feel obligated to pay for something. At the library there is no pressure other than them requiring you to own a free library card.
3. Silence granted.
Do you hear that? Precisely! At the library it is so quiet. If by the off chance you are sitting at a table where students and studying and visiting there are even designated quiet rooms you can go to. This is imperative when you really want to get in the zone and you do not want to be distracted.
4. Help is there.
If you need help finding something there is always someone willing and ready to help you at the library. If they do not know the answer they don’t tell you no and leave you to it they go and find someone who knows the answer or can find the answer.
5. Media available other than books.
It’s not just books that they have here, they’ve got movies, music, audio books, and more and more e-books are even becoming available.
