Reaping the Benefits of a Local Library in Your Wildwood Apartment
With online book stores, books on CD, and electronic reading devices, it can be easy to get caught up in the new “technology” of reading. Just don’t forget your good old-fashioned lending library, right in your very own town. It’s easy and free to get a library card. All you’ll need is proof of address to receive a pass to a marvelous world of books, magazines, newspapers, and more.
In fact, there are quite a few additional benefits to using the local library that you may not even have considered, including:
- Many libraries now have extensive DVD collections. Whether you want a foreign film, a rom-com, or a biopic, chances are the library shelves it. Some libraries offer free rentals, while others charge $1.00-$2.00 per rental. Either way, it’s a great value!
- Trying to save some money by cancelling your subscription to your favorite magazine? You may be surprised to know that your local library carries a wide selection of magazines, from financial periodicals to fashion mags.
- Check the library’s book sale schedule. Once or twice a month, libraries will usually host a used book sale where old or over-stocked inventory will be sold at steep discounts. Hardbacks are usually $1.00-$3.00, while paperbacks can be priced as low as 50 cents. This is also a great way to lend financial support to the library.
There are so many great things to see and do in the vicinity of your Wildwood apartment. If you’d like more information about the area, PepperTree Apartments, or the wonderful amenities we have to offer, please don’t hesitate to contact our leasing office today.
- Ask the librarian about the Special Collections section. Many university and local libraries have a Special Collections room where rare, discontinued, or vintage books are kept. From antique maps to World War II-era cartoon strips, you may be surprised by all the hidden treasures your library has to offer.
