How would Joseph Smith have afforded the money to borrow books from a library?

Similar to questioning whether Joseph Smith would have been able to afford paper for drafts, we can also question how he would have had enough money to borrow all the library books he would have needed to write the Book of Mormon.

There are many things in the Book of Mormon which could in theory be explained if Joseph had read enough books and studied enough about Hebraisms in Mesopotamia etc. however we know that in Joseph’s day it was not free to take out library books

We have no evidence of Joseph spending hours and hours in the library so how did he afford all the books he is accused of plagiarizing from?
