Having read and article in this section by another mum on their family outings to the library, I got inspired today. I rang to ask if they had a particular movie in that I wanted and all three copies were out but I was able to have one reserved for me when it comes in. Now I have recently found myself in different financial circumstances due to well things outside of my control. It is amazing what you can access and how you learn to repurpose and recycle and make things from last when you have to. My current situation has taut me so much about how to live a more frugal but also more sustainable way of life. I walked away from the library with 23 items and I was thrilled. Thanks to all the mums on here that inspire us with their ideas and tips, be it lifestyle, budget, cooking etc.

  • The library is a great place during any time of year and the best part is you can read a book as well while your kids read and browse and the kids section . I had one about 5-10 mins drive from my place and it even had a childrens park next to it so if it was a sunny day , they would play in the park as well . Really worthwhile .

  • Libraries are so much more now than they used to be. I frequently borrow books, dvds and toys, and if you need to use the internet & can’t at home, most libraries have computers that you can use, or WIFI if you have laptop or tablet of your own. And since discovering MoMs, I’ve found so much useful information and great recipes, and it’s good to share our thoughts, stories and questions with other mums.

  • I love the public library, being someone on a pension, it is a great way to get something for nothing, OK its only temp that you have it, but its still a great read, or a good movie and you did not have to pay to see or read it. its a great place with some great holiday activities for the kids to at times
