One of the best things about libraries is that they are all unique. Each one has a different selection. Some libraries offer media other than books such as ebooks, dvds, and cds. Many libraries have rare books and records that are specifically about that town or local area. For historians and genealogists, this type of information can invaluable especially since it is not likely to be on the internet.
Libraries have a unique place in this society. It’s not often that people, young or old, have a place to go to educate themselves and/or for entertainment. The best part of all of this is that it’s free. Many people especially in this poor economy do not have the money for the services libraries offer. A lot of people go to libraries to use computers and to have access to the internet. This may not matter to some people, but to others it can greatly enhance their lives.
