Boston Globe: Importance of Public Libraries II
author profile you will see a major section is MAGIC OF LIBRARIES, which quotes Brooks, "The wonderful thing about libraries and why I’ll never stop going... is the serendipitous encounters that can happen in the stacks of a great library." I previously posted the other one, about GDP vs. the Social Progress Index, with my opinion that the author's thesis shows how central Public Libraries our to our national progress and success. Stories about the demise of the Public Library are not just premature, they are simply wrong!
