Slow Economy? Use The Library!

Chelmsford Library logoAlmost everyone has been effected by higher-than-normal food and gas prices, a weaker-than-normal dollar, and an overall sluggish economy. But one thing that hasn’t become more expensive is the Library.

In addition to books, the Library has movies on DVD and VHS, books and music on CD, cassette, Playaway, and downloadable audio files, computer games, newspaper and magazines in print and online, internet access, passes to local museums and parks, programs and events for kids and adults, and a lot more – and it’s all free!

A writer for The Consumerist came up with a list of 7 Ways Your Public Library Can Help You During A Bad Economy, even if you’re not a big reader. Also, National Public Radio recently aired a story on how Libraries Shine In Tough Economic Times, and how people can benefit from libraries now more than ever.

If you’re looking for something to do, or help with a question, or just a cool place to spend some time, check out the library.
