Saving Money at Your Library
September 25, 2013
I am a bargain shopper. I use the ads to look for sales, and then I use coupon websites to save even more. My favorite part is when I check out and the cashier looks at the bottom of the receipt and tells me how much I saved. I feel like a really great shopper. Wouldn’t it be great if you got a receipt that printed out your savings every time you checked out books or used other materials at the library? The computers won’t do that, but there is a way to figure out your savings.
The MCPL website has a library value calculator that you can use to figure out just how much you saved. One trip to the Midwest Genealogy Center could save you lots of money. If you spent one hour on the computer and used three genealogy databases; asked our staff two reference questions; borrowed five books and order one through interlibrary loan; and signed up for one class before you left, you would have saved $212. The savings really adds up.
Come back often, doing genealogy at the Library will save lots of money and make you feel great. Just bring your library card; no coupons are necessary!
