Another way to support your local library is to use it. Check out books. Read them. Return them. Smart librarians use circulation figures to bolster their budget proposals.

Wow, they're amazing. I wish our school library had stuff like that. Mybe I could try to make something like that. Although it probably wouldn't turn out so well.
BTW, happy banned book week.

hahah that's the way to my heart, but I think the thought of cutting up books would cause some librarians a lot of anguish...
