Believe it or not, some people pay tens of thousands of dollars a year for a good traditional university education. In addition, some people will even go to the ends of the earth to gain real-world knowledge while paying tens of thousands of dollars a year too for their own self-education via seminars, coaches, consultants, self-improvement programs, and books. Wow, pretty impressive, huh? You want to know what’s also pretty impressive and is a resource that we all have? It’s the free public library that is just right down the road from us. It is bursting at the seams with free educational books, audiobooks, videos, professional staff, and much, much more.
Our national, state, and city governments have teamed up with civic organizations and philanthropists to invest huge amounts of money to make sure that this incredible free resource, the library, is available to all of us. Are you grasping how amazing this is? This is an equal opportunity for us all in which other people are spending their money on us! Are you taking advantage of this opportunity and helping these generous people get their money’s worth in their investment in you and your community via your public library?
Trust me, the free public library and all those knowledge and skill-giving books inside that warm, snow-free, rain-free, and stress-free self-building edifice is worth our efforts and time. Once we get there and see what the free public library has to offer, I think we’ll be very pleased and want to spend a whole lot of more time there. You want to know something else? Once we establish a pattern of self-educating ourselves at our local free public libraries, then we’ll see that that time and effort thing is getting easier and even automatic.
Now teens, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Remember that we can save tons of money by using the free public library. I suggest we get down there right now. And once again, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
