- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My father is a bookbinder and my mother often complains that she is drowning in books. So she uses the library (in my hometown) almost exclusively. At the end of the year she calculates what she would have spent buying the books she read, then donates a percentage of that money to the library. I think that's a great way to give the library extra support if you are able.
She convinced me to start using the library here seven or eight years ago. Now we have two children and use the library quite a bit. I have a weakness for buying kid's books so the ones that we check out and love I often end up buying. I appreciate this "try before you buy" aspect of the library.
