Has Visiting the Library Become a Thing Of The Past?

Nomatter where you are – PLEASE support your local Libraries…


A few days ago, I decided to take a walk out by a shopping centre and as I walked by a Library, I saw tables, chairs and aisles all empty. Maybe 2-3 people were in there max. I began to think about how dependent people have gotten over using the internet now to find information instantly, rather than sifting through index cube cards, and looking through aisles of books to get what we want. over 10-15 years ago, you would see a lot more people in the libraries, nowadays, you don’t see many.

I admit, I haven’t been to a library in years because we can find all the information on the internet in the comfort of your own home instead of venturing out to the library which would take a while to research, read and everything.

  2. Ooh, our library thrives! Every time I have been, it’s been packed, inside and out. We have picnic tables, swings, benches and a park-like atmosphere outside where people make themselves comfortable all the time. Inside, we have 4 computer labs, work stations and separate areas for children (who might care to act out their favorite books in a space where their enthusiasm is encouraged). All of this, in addition to the healthy collection of books and periodicals for use and check out. Honestly, there is no one age group in there. We offer classes, lectures, workshops and it is open 7 days a week. Ya’ll can move here, we welcome you! 🙂
