Where can you find a bookstore that sells paperback books for 75 cents or $1 DVDs? I regularly visit my local library and it didn’t dawn on me until this week what a really good thrift shopping buzz can be found… at the library!
Yes, the Friends Bookstore at North University Community Library had me at the first hello. I shop there regularly– especially for my summer “beach reads.”

And when my computer was on the blitz– I used the computer room at my local library to write-up my blog posts.
Look at the cute children’s story area. And the computers. On Wednesday night when I stopped by there was a lively bluegrass band– “Old Town Road” playing for patrons. For free.
I noticed there is a knitting group that meets at the library. For free. You can meet your neighbors and learn to knit… at the library. Looks like there are quite a few books on textiles and knitting– more cost-effective to check out the books rather than buying them.
By far my favorite part of the library is the Friends of the Library bookstore- filled with those $1 hardcover books and 75 cent paperbacks.
So… have fun at the library.
