As you browse the internet, you can see the availability of books, ebooks, audiobooks, and more at your local library. They support nearly four thousand libraries in the United States, Canada, UK, New Zealand, and Australia. With your library’s availability listed alongside popular titles, you can take advantage of hundreds of reviews and recommendations, while borrowing books from down the street.

The list of supported libraries is here. It is also free! I use it all the time and have saved so much money because I don’t have to think about checking my public library to see if a title is available. It’s already laid out for you.

  1. Yes! Support your local library. For decades I didn’t. And I’m a reading specialist! I was spending ALL THAT MONEY on books. Guess what? I’ve donated most of them now, in an effort to declutter.

    In addition to saving money, Public Libraries serve an important social function. Most towns where I live do not have a town center or a town Square. We have cars, parking lots, and stores. However, nearly every town does have a public library. The library serves as an important social gathering place, as well as a purveyor of materials and knowledge.

    It’s win-win all the way. Support your library.
