Reason #65: Before You Buy It, Try It First!

Reason #65 - Before you buy it, try it out first!

One of the beautiful things about St. Thomas Public Library is that you can borrow ANYTHING for free. Sure, there are rules attached like you have to return it on time, you have to take care of it and bring it back undamaged, you know the drill. But one aspect that often gets overlooked is, we’re your test centre before you purchase something!

Thinking about buying a Kobo Touch? Borrow one for three weeks to make sure that device is right for you. Interested in taking a leisure class? Check out our non-fiction section to see if you can learn on our own without spending a dime. Not sure where you want to apply to for post-secondary education? Read about universities before you drop a few grand on tuition, only to find out you don’t like the place at all. Considering taking out a magazine subscription for you or as a gift? Borrow a few editions from the library to make sure you actually like it before you’re stuck with it for an entire year. And before you go to a book store or Cost-co, check out our travel and recipe books! You’ll likely only use them once and you don’t have to spend money on a bunch of recipes that you’ll never actually use…

We’re celebrating the fact that you can sample things at the library before you buy them or sink money into something. Don’t like what you’ve checked out? Bring it back! We have a hassle-free return policy ;o)
