This morning I was flipping through the LA Times (I still look through the print edition) and found this article on the increased use of libraries during these tough economic times. Not only is supporting your local libraries a great idea, you can also save money too :)
I can say for a fact that this is true. Sundays are the BPL are now even busier than it has been in the past. People come in for all sorts of reasons, great events, checking out books, using computers, reading magazines and newspapers, and even checking out videos and dvds. I am also pleasantly surprised at who comes into the library - star sightings have been known to happen. You really never know what or who you'll find at the library.
