The Library Card Vs. The Black Card

We’re about to blow. your. mind. There’s also a small chance that we’ve just been living under a rock for the past 5 years and this is all common knowledge by now…but we’re pretty sure we’re about to blow your mind. Owning a library card is more powerful than owning a black card. That’s right. Quote us on it.

To prove it to you, we present to you life hack #3, the life hack to rule them all: All of the super neat, useful, and totally free things you can do with your super neat, useful, and totally free library card.

  1. Borrow ebooks on Overdrive without ever leaving your bed (and you can extend the loan date from your bed too!)
  2. Take online courses at Lynda that normally cost money, for free! (check your library’s website to see if they participate in this)
  3. Stream movies, you guessed it, for free! Sign up at Kanopy with your LC (that’s slang for library card).
  4. Get employment training and assistance. A staggering 96% of libraries offer online job or employment resources.
  5. Learn a new language! Sign up on Mango with your super neat LC and get access to courses for over 70 languages. Muy interesante!
  6. Stop giving those crooked billionaire local museum owners your money! Just kidding about the crooked billionaire part, not kidding about free museum passes via your El Cee. And for all of you New Yorkers, voilà.

Free music with either Freegal or Hoopla. You might as well just throw out your wallet at this point. Money is but an unnecessary burden when you are the proud owner of a Card du Library!

Is there more? There’s probably more, but honestly we’re too busy signing up for all of these free deals to go any further.
