Final Installment of Raising Kids on a Shoestring: Making the Most of Your Public Library
October 27, 2011
Throughout "Raising Kids on a Shoestring," authors recommended books and websites that may provide further assistance and ideas for creative, frugal living. Many of these books and websites can be accessed through local libraries, which is why the magazine begins, and this e-series ends, with Cat Clark's "Making the Most of Your Public Library."
But as Cat points out, "public libraries are more than just a place to borrow or read books, magazines and newspapers, audio books, music and videos for both children and adults." Community bulletin boards and publications share information about events and services in your area, and many public libraries offer a variety of free and low-cost classes and programs for children and adults. The article also suggests tips for buying and swapping books inexpensively.
