Your LA library card can save you thousands of dollars, here’s how

From Timeout Los Angeles

“You may not know it—I sure as hell didn’t—but your LA County and LA Public Library cards come with some insane benefits. The most obvious is, of course, being able to freely check out almost any library book, graphic novel and movie, but let’s talk about the other free perks that are, quite literally, at your fingertips. Whether you live in Santa Monica or Downtown Los Angeles, your library card gives you access to some pretty killer subscription services that you would have to shell out hundreds of dollars for otherwise. We combed through all the offers available via both the County of Los Angeles Public Library and Los Angeles Public Library networks (yes, they’re different) and highlighted the absolute best deals.”
