Learning about and Using the Library

What is the one place where you can get free books any day of the week? The library! Of course libraries offer more than just books … there are DVDs, music, special programs, even story times. We’ve rounded up some resources to help those who may not be familiar with – or who are uncomfortable – using your neighborhood library.  We even have some videos about libraries.
