Libraries are brilliant!
As long as you look after the books and bring them back, libraries lend you books for free. It really does not get better than that. If you have a special book you want to read you can ask if it is at another library and order it and there are often groups and reading sessions during the week. Many libraries are not getting the funding they need – if you support them, not only will you get to read lots of books for free but they are more likely to survive spending cuts.
