I've kept track of the e-books that I've checked out since the library started e-books in 2010 and what they cost on Amazon at the time I checked them out. 289 books - $2316. And that's not counting the audio books I've checked out. I've always told my kids that the library is one of the only things in life that's free! I've told many people about the wonderful things available at the library.
