Public libraries are the ultimate reusable resource
Link to a February 10 lunch.com post. (via Twitter)
Excerpt: Even in this age where reduce, reuse and recycle are three ideas that are on the minds of many, one place may get overlooked for it's green services. I'll give you a hint ...Shhh... if you enjoy books, like to save money and are an eco-conscious person look no further than your local public library. Instead of purchasing a book, see if your local public library has it in stock. As you probably know, when you are finished with the book, just return it and repeat the process. The best part is that is that all of this is free. Now public libraries not only carry books, but also audio-books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and more.
Basic stuff, but as one commenter noted, "I used to go to the library all the time and this review has been a great reminder that I need another trip. Thanks!"
