I know a guy who earns on line but does not have a home computer. So he goes to the Library every day to work on line to make money for 2 hours a day. If you had to go to the library to make money everyday would you? Or would you just stay home?

I have used the library computer as a temporary solution. I could not see doing it long term but it was a nice stop gap for a few weeks.

If it was the only way I could earn money, I would definitely go to the library. It's nice that he's not giving up on earning money. It would probably be annoying to have to do it at the library, but that's what they're there for. I'm sure he would like to spend more than two hours a day at it.

When my computer system was down for a time, that's just what I did. I remember it quite well. Actually, it wasn't bad at all. The change of scenery was O.K. I think that if I was really churning out a great online earning and I didn't have a home computer, I would continue to go the the library every day. I could probably handle the library for a while, maybe a few weeks or so, but after that, if my online earnings were only a few pennies here and there, I'd probably have to come up with a plan B.

If I didn't have a computer at home I would have to log into paypal at the library or use netbanking from the library, and I don't like to do that from a public computer. That is something that I would have to consider before I decided if I wanted to use the earning sites at the library. It also depends on the distance between the library and my home, if I had to use public transportation to get to the library and if I only earned a few cents a day on my sites it wouldn't be worth it. In that case I would probably "earn" more if I saved the busticket and stayed at home instead.

It would depend. If I really needed the money and I had no other way of earning and the only way of accessing the Internet was from the libray, then I would do it. I would think that going out everyday and earning some money is a better option than staying at home.

Actually, I fell really bore in a library. Whether it is for learning or earning. But the amount of salary I will be receiving by going to a library may affect my thinking. If I would get a salary which is satisfactory for me, I would join the Library Business for sure.

Hmmmmmm. Now in my situation, I am a stay at home mom . . . so I am on the computer at home whenever I have a chance. The computer is here, so I can go online at my own convenience - whether it's during the day or the middle of the night. So for me, I don't think I would go to the library to get on the computer . . . the kids would be with me and I need to keep an eye on them - ha ha. The library has limited hours and limited computer time (it seems you always have to wait because there are others using the computers) - and I don't have that extra time.

Going to the library to work can keep you focused. There are many distactions at home usually such as television and family. I do work at home but sometime I can accomplish a lot at the library. The library put you in a good environment where you can get things accomplished. The library also gives you access to other resources that you may not have at home. I was just at the library yesterday and got some very good ideas to earn more income.

Yes if I did not have a computer and or internet in my home and a library was close, I would also do as your friend. When we think about needing more money, then we do what it takes to make it, within reason of course. We do not have a nearby one here, but if I really needed to earn the money, yes I would go to the library and figure out how to do so, if nothing else was available.

If it was the only way that I could make money then I certainly would. In fact when my lap top broke down a couple of years ago that is what I had to do. It was a pain in the rump, but I had to do it, or shut my business down and make no money at all. I think sometimes we just gotta do what we gotta do and if we gotta do it at the library then so be it.

Personally speaking, I will not go to library to earn money if I have a job. In my view, library is an ideal place for people to increase their knowledge. If I don't have a job, I would rather spend these two hours in looking for a job or learning some useful skills to make myself more competitive. I don't know how much could the guy earn through these two-hour online programs. But I don't think it's a meaningful activity which he could insist doing.

It would depend on how far away from the library a person lives and how much it would cost to get there. For me the library is just a few blocks away and I can get there on foot. So for me, yes it would be beneficial to spend 2 hours per day if I didn't have a new connection at home.

This is actually really funny because I actually work at a library! I'm whats called a 'page' (person who puts back books). It's not the best job on earth and pays very little, but it's enough to get me a movie and some gas.
