"To ask why we need libraries at all, when there is so much information available elsewhere, is about as sensible as asking if roadmaps are necessary now that there are so very many roads." 

-- Jon Bing


We couldn't agree more.  Come visit your local library.  A quiet place to study, relax, work or simply escape in a good book.  It's fun, the old-fashioned way.
