Centsible Saver: Bargains go beyond books at the public library http://www.newsobserver.com/2014/01/18/3542135/centsible-saver-bargains-go-beyond.html My favorite bookstore is the public library. Over the years, I figure I’ve saved hundreds of dollars by borrowing rather than buying. Worst-case scenario, I pay the fine – 10 cents a day, up to $2, the maximum fine for an overdue book in Wake County, where I live. A steal of a deal.
