Of What Use is a Library?

In a time of instantly accessible information, libraries are often low on the list of needed government services. Here's one viewpoint on the value of libraries, even today.

Here's a few pictures of MY library, growing up. It's the Lakewood Library, which I try to visit a few times a year, when I'm back in OH.

How the Library looked when I was growing up

Today's library - the small part to the right is the original

View from an upper floor - the rooms - North, South, East, and West - contain reading rooms, stacks, and specialty rooms

Just ONE of the reading rooms. They are completely connected to the Internet, with lots of plug-in sockets on the tables, and are quite conducive to work and research.
