The same reason I would buy a book and then re-read it. If a book means enough to me, it "graduates" or "gets promoted" from a library borrow into my personal bookshelf.

My kids are like that. If we have spending money in a bookstore, they'll go, "I want that one, I loved it soooo much at the library!".

The book means enough to them that even though they *can* read it for free, they still want to own their own copy.
