Off Campus Libraries

Libraries are a lot more than just books. They have become community centers, hosting such activities as lectures, films, classes, and various events for children. Many libraries also have memberships to area museums and lend out free tickets to the public. Stop by your local library and see what is happening. Most local libraries also have a DVD / video section where you can check out videos free of charge or for a low cost.

NOTE: A wide selection of videos and DVDs can be rented with a free library card.
