Brooklyn Public Library


Guilt-Free Plastic

Oct 3, 2008 2:57 PM | 1 comment

In these challenging times, debt is scarier than ever. Maybe it’s time to put a piece of plastic in your wallet that’s not going to result in some serious regret.


If you still don’t have a library card, what are you waiting for? Think of all you can get for free at Brooklyn Public Library that you might be dropping serious coin on elsewhere. 


Well, yeah, you can borrow books. But, did you know that you can borrow up to 50 for three weeks? How much would it cost to buy 50 books? And if you’re like me, you might never get around to reading purchased books. But if you borrow them, you have a deadline! You can even download an eBook on our website.


You can also borrow DVDs from a selection of many popular titles. On rainy days, download an eVideo from the comfort of your own home. 


All of our buildings have free WiFi and, unlike a coffee shop, we won’t make you buy anything to use it! If you don’t have a laptop, we have public computers.


And we have the information you need, when you need it. Learn everything about anything anytime by accessing a database on our website, perfect for late-night study sessions or the occasional bout of insomnia. If you’re a student, you can also get Live Online Homework Help from a tutor seven days a week in the afternoon and evening.


Act now! Supplies aren’t running out!
