CUT INFORMATION CLUTTER
If you've recently noticed a growing mountain of books, magazines, and papers that constantly need stacking, storing, and organizing, then you may be in need of today's encouragement to reconsider the long lost use of the local library. Since these types of "mountains" take up valuable space and precious time I'd like you to consider the many services available at the library. Libraries provide information for business, education, and entertainment. This information is available in a variety of formats.
Sometimes the best way to learn about something is via a video…the library has it. Audio tapes of music, books, or educational and training courses…the library has them. Online databases provide hundreds of facts tailored to your topics or the hard copy of the articles and books cited in them…the library has them. There's someone who's ready, willing, and able to help you with whatever it is you need to know…your local librarian!
So, why buy books you don't really consider essential for long term when you can borrow them from the library and let them store them for you in an orderly manner? You'll not only have un-bulging bookshelves, you'll save lots of money…and time! Hundreds of periodicals can be found in the public library, many of which you can check out or photocopy articles of particular interest.
For further savings you can purchase used books from the library during their sales to raise money for their programs, services, and purchase of new books. When you finally get around to weeding out your personal collection you can take them to your local library. Even high school yearbooks given to your hometown library may be welcome items as many libraries try to have complete sets, and even duplicates.
I hope this information will encourage you to check out your nearby library and take advantage of the resources and services offered, and take time to get acquainted with the staff. They are there to serve your information needs!
