School libraries offer a great deal of printed and digital material on starting your own business, general business structures, writing a business plan, and the area of your trade. Here are five reasons why you should utilize your school library.

One: You get your money’s worth out of your tuition
Every year you pay thousands of dollars on school tuition. Included in your tuition is access to thousands of books, magazines, and electronic articles.

Two: Walk over with your ID and its yours!

If you are a student, you most likely have a school identification card. Taking out a book is as simple as walking over with the book and showing the librarian your ID. No money, no sign-up forms, no headaches.

Three: One of the quietest place on campus
If you want to get focused and get some work done, you can always count on the library to have quiet areas. Personally, I like to go to the floor with the least amount of activity and find a quiet corner to ready, study, and/or write.

Four: School libraries (and college libraries in general) have wider selections than municipal libraries
School libraries know their visitors and they have specific books for their major or interest. You will not have to search through a gazillion books to find one that you’re looking for.

Five: A great place to meet people.
Forget about the local bars, fraternity and sorority houses,the library is where the you can meet some new friends. All different types of students go to the library to study, read, or write, why not go to socialize a bit in between working?

    Most libraries will borrow books from other libraries if you request one that is not available at that location. This is a great way to get your textbooks for free during the semester. Professors will sometimes put their copies of textbooks in the library for student use, too.

    I personally think using Ebooks through your student account is a wonderful resource. I’ve gotten access to lots of free stuff.

    Hey Chris!
    I agree with you completely! College is expensive, so why not use every resource that they offer. I personally like to be in a place with a little bit of noise, but where most people are working, and my school library is great for that! Libraries can be great for meeting people too. At my school, the library will hold social events occasionally. I hope other people take your advice and use their school libraries!
