Free Stuff

I’m always looking for the best return on my investment especially when it comes to investing in my education. The following are some free things I use.

1. Los Angeles Library Card

When you get a library card from the Los Angeles Public Library you gain access to tons of online content for free. It only takes 10 minutes to get the card at a local branch and is available to all California residents, not just residents of Los Angeles County.

2. The New York Times

With a Los Angeles Library card you have free access to the entire New York Times online through the libraries e-media website. The subscription is normally $9.99 a month.

3. Lynda.Com

With a Los Angeles Library card you have free access to a premium account on Lynda.com through the libraries e-media section. The website is a high quality online learning platform. A premium account usually costs $29.99. With your library card it’s free.
