FULL DISCLOSURE I PAY $27 FOR 6 MONTHS FOR ONE OF MY LIBRARY CARDS

I have 2 Arkansas library cards. One is for my county and it’s free. The other I pay a small fee to use and it’s the Central Arkansas library in Little Rock which has a much bigger catalogue especially for audiobooks. It use to be free for me because the company I work for has it’s main office in the same county but now they have changed it to if you don’t live or own personal property in that county you have to pay to have a card. I understand, since Arkansas libraries are paid for by our personal property taxes and since my tax money pays for my city/county library it makes that card free for me. 

Here is a break down on how I’ve saved using my library card so far for 2022. Almost all or audiobooks so I didn’t have to use any of my credits to listen.
