Private libraries usually have fewer resources, and tend to be more accessible to families with limited financial means.

When book buyers want to book their books at a public book store, they’ll have to contact the owner of the book and the local library.
Public book sellers will usually be located in the city.
Private book sellers typically have more local locations.
If your city is in Austin or Dallas, you’ll likely have to go to the library directly.
