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.
