Using the Library

**For those of you joining me from the A to Z Challenge, welcome! I'm homeschooling through the alphabet.**

The other day I shared about how pivotal books are in homeschooling. Bookstores, real world and on-line, are a great source, but one of the most important places to find books is the library.

L is for Library

The library is one of my favorite places ever! How can you not love a place with an unlimited number of books to read - for free! (Well, almost free. Unfortunately, I tend to have overdue fines often.)

One of the best features of our library is the interlibrary loan program. If our local library doesn't have a book I want or need, I can request the book from the other libraries which participate in the SC Lends program, and they send it to our library. All I have to do is show up at the desk with my library card and pick it up. It can't get any more convenient that that. Well, actually, they could deliver them straight to my house, but that would be asking a bit much, right?

How often do you use your local library?
