Today's 4 p.m. KVOA Savvy Savings Story: Saving Money at the Library

Savvy Savings on News 4 at 4:00 p.m.

Yesterday I watched Confessions of a Shopaholic on DVD. We checked it out at our library.

One of my favorite money saving places is the local library. We have a tiny library here in Marana, but we are linked to the Pima County Public Library system. I can request new release books and movies. They deliver them straight to my library and email me when they are ready for pick up. Movies can be checked out for 3 weeks.

So many classes and services are offered at the 27 branches of the Pima County Public Library. Last year over 2400 classes were offered for people of all ages.

1. What's available for kids- Besides story and baby times, the library has their Read to a dog program. Their homework help program is available online, by phone, or at specific branches on specific dates. Website lists dates, times, and locations.

2. What's available for teens- Besides homework help, the library has video gaming and music events for teenagers available at certain branches.

3. What's available for adults- They offer free citizenship classes, computer classes, business counseling for small businesses, writing workshops, and classes on anything from digital photography to geneology.

All this information can be obtained at your local library or on the website- www.library.pima.gov
