I'm a huge fan of libraries. Visiting your local library to take out books and movies is such an easy way to be green. There is no reason to buy a new book or DVD that you might only watch once. Save the resources it takes to make those discs, cases and books. You can help save the environment and save your own money by visiting a library.
If you do feel the need to buy that latest release that isn't available at your library yet, why not donate it to your library after you've watched it? Libraries aren't free to maintain and it's certainly not cheap to fill the shelves with newly published books and new movie releases.
Each year libraries across the country host Summer Reading Programs. The theme for this year's program is "Beneath the Surface". These reading programs are not just for the youngest readers but many libraries have programs for teens and adults as well. I look forward to seeing the fun events our library comes up with relating to the theme.
My son Sam decided to enter the 2013 Teen Video Challenge. He is an avid movie watcher, reviewer and writer/director. He also has a Youtube channel with several short films he's created.
