The Library is a Good Source for Free Textbooks

Although the library might be the last place you'll find yourself in, you might want to reconsider. Not only is it a great place to study, but it's also a great place to find books (obviously). Specifically, you can find some of the textbooks you actually need right in your library. I bet you didn't know that. Besides books, some campuses have subscriptions to thousands of scholarly journals accessible to students who want to do research. If you're fortunate to be at a research institution, you shouldn't let these research documents pass you by, because seriously, you're paying for it with your tuition. Because these subscriptions don't come free, the school spends millions on them each year with your money.

So stop being so cool, and take a stroll at your schools library, you might be suprised, but there are a lot of books at your disposal. It doesn't even have to be school books, you could even check out your favorite Harry Potter book. Anyway, enough with formalities, let's get down to business.
