Living Within a Super Tight Budget
October 13, 2010
Living within a super tight budget has definitely been eased by MCPL’s continually expanding collections and access to WorldCat. I can acquire the newest books, audio selections, and DVDs. There are formats for any situation, and I always keep a wide variety in my personal MCPL collection. Would I like to listen to a CD while I’m driving around, doing my errands? Perhaps, I might take a book or the magazine I wanted to browse through to my dentist’s visit. So many choices! Of course, waiting for the newest releases is not very difficult. Until they arrive, I can always find something interesting on the shelves, or request something that’s available from another branch. The turnaround time on available materials has always been and continues to be very good. And when that long awaited item comes in, it’s like a little present! I can’t even begin to figure out how much money I’ve saved in my lifetime by borrowing instead of buying. So, keep spreading the word to family and friends: “Get to the Library!” It really will put a smile on your face, and keeps that extra cash in your pocket.
