13 Things You Pay For That Your Library Has For Free

SF Chronicle – “If it has been a few years or a few decades since you’ve ventured into your local library, you’re going to be very surprised by what you find. No longer are these dusty institutions of quiet corners, musty books and stern librarians, they are home to bestsellers, coffee carts, teen rooms, community, and civic gatherings. Libraries offer computer classes, babysitting workshops, tutoring programs and literacy programs, most of which are free, or are offered at a nominal fee. Not all services mentioned in this article are available at every library, but it’s worth finding out if your local library offers a similar option.”

    What they have less and less of… books. My local library has gone down to a mere quarter of an aisle of science fiction and fantasy. They used to have an entire aisle for each of them! Total square footage devoted to BOOKS has been cut in half to make room for trendy computer rooms, reading areas (reading WHAT, there aren’t any books!) and meeting rooms that are almost never used.
