Saving Money at the Library

We all know that using the library is a great way to save money — from free Internet access to a huge assortment of books, movies, music and more. But there are certainly other resources out there to help you make the most of your hard-earned dollars.  Here are a few of the best online resources we’ve discovered:

Have fun — on a budget.
