#67 Use your local library

As a big lover of books and reading, one of my favorite places is our public library. What better way is there to get all the books you want at no charge? And then return them so they don't clutter up your house? Not that I don't like to own books, and my kids especially have quite a few. But the library is the greenest way I know to do a lot of reading. Then I can know after I've read a book if it's one that I potentially want to have a copy to keep.
Pros: Free, reuses books therefore less trees used to make new books. Many libraries also have great kid programs, and movies.
Cons: Fines for not returning things on time. High demand books are sometimes hard to come by.
