My niece Samantha has a paper due soon and she needed books from the Library. In the past, the Jefferson County library card was free even though I live in Walker County because I work in Jefferson County and I pay occupational tax. Since the economic meltdown in Jefferson County, they've started charging to renew library cards.
Today it was $50. That smarted a little, but where else can you go and have access to so many great resources. There are books, tapes, cd's DVD's, magazines, newspapers, and archives.
I love libraries. Samantha checked out a half dozen books she needed to finish her paper and I checked out a book called the Social Media Bible. It contains a wealth of information on how to use "new media" to get your message across.
I'm just glad they don't charge what the card is "really" worth.
