  7. I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. It’s probably not even real.

EB White on the power and importance of libraries, 1971.

The insane thing is, if you’re privileged enough to have a computer or internet access today, it’s quite likely you don’t actually know what the value of a library is.
Libraries play a valuable role in the community far beyond just providing books. I volunteered at my local library for a few months, and the biggest thing that I learned about libraries is that the library is one of the most valuable government services provided to the elderly and underprivileged. You get free computer and internet access - invaluable in this day and age, where it’s simply expected that if you don’t know something, you can find out in a couple of seconds with your computer - and you get a trained staff that are there to show you how to use the computer [valuable to those who’ve never used one before, especially the elderly and homeless], and who can help you find information, find and apply for jobs, set up an email account, apply for government programs and assistance, find shelters and food kitchens, et cetera. 
Information is insanely valuable, and the least privileged among us simply don’t have access to it. Libraries make it so that they do, and yet libraries suffer funding cuts year after year because they’re an easy target when most people can satisfy their information and reading needs elsewhere. 
Libraries aren’t just about books, at least not anymore. Libraries help people get back on their feet. They keep people connected to the world when it seems like the world has entirely forgotten about them. Some of the most compassionate, caring people work at libraries - they get a master’s degree in order to work in library science and then get shit pay because they want to help people and help preserve one of the most fundamentally important parts of our society.
