Many of us pass by newsstands filled with magazines that have catchy headlines and beautiful cover photos. Sometimes we even grab an issue and flip through a few pages, but have to put it back before heading for the long checkout lane. We tell ourselves that maybe we’ll have more time next visit. But we all know how that goes. For a split second, we even consider just buying the magazines to read later at home but realize the hit that would take to our budget, especially if we did that every month. So what’s a busy, budget-conscious person to do? Reach for your wallet, but not for what you might think. Find your Johnson County Library card, it’s more powerful than many realize.
