Confessions of a Heavy Library User

Here’s a great pro-library essay from a self-confessed library addict.

That leads me to another advantage of my library card. It’s helping me wean myself off of buying books. I ran out of bookshelf space even after giving away 800 books — to a library book sale, of course — when we moved into our current house. Now I just reserve the newest and most obscure books from the library so I don’t have to find a space to store them after buying them.
