I recently needed a book that the Oak Park Public Library didn’t have, so I went to Amazon and it was $30.94 with shipping. On a whim, I checked the Book Table in Oak Park and it was $22.46. No shipping required because I’m often out running errands anyway so just used their outside pickup service. Total savings was $5.98. The Book Table will ship, but even at that I would have saved 43 cents. Either way is a savings, but both methods support a fine local business which also happens to be the only bookstore left in our area.
