Public libraries are obviously great: Books, DVDs, and more are there for the borrowing, free of charge. Now there are ways to get more out of the library without actually going to the library.
How? Downloadable books. More and more libraries offer e-books and audio books that patrons can download as they please, per the NY Times. You simply go online, enter your library card number, and download your book. A few weeks later, the e-book expires, so you have to renew it if you’re not done yet.
