Save $6,936 a Year by Using Your Public Library

I picked up this interesting flyer at my local library the other day. It explained how using the library can save a family of four $6,936 over the course of a year. You and your family may use some of these categories more than others, but any way you slice it, the library is a tremendous value and cost-saving measure. I don't know what I would do without it!

Books
2 books per week for each child - 16 monthly @ $12 = $192
3 books per month for each adult - 6 monthly @ $15 = $90

Videos and DVDs
2 videos per week for children - 8 monthly @ $4  = $32
1 video per week per adults - 4 monthly @ $4 = $16

Programs at the Library
(includes story times/adult programs/other activities)
monthly savings - $68

Museum Passes
2 visits per month per family of 4 = $100

Online Databases (Magazines, Newspapers, Journals)
used 4x a month for school, research, etc - $80
