This is soooo true!! If I had not had access to libraries as a child / teen, I would not be the voracious reader that I am today. Even with libraries, free offerings, and other no-cost options, I still manage to spend more than I should on books. Each dollar I've spent would have gone elsewhere if not for libraries.
