    I have family members who have worked in libraries for years. The recent rise in popularity of ebooks and audio books has always brought into question the feasibility and future of libraries in the digital age. However, the library is so much more than books! It’s a gathering place for community members and groups (most public libraries have meeting rooms that are often booked by area groups); it’s a source for government resources, like IRS tax booklets and instructions; it’s an educational resource through library-sponsored programs like story-times, ESL and computer classes, etc.; it’s a link to our past with incredible resources (and don’t forget the knowledgeable staff) to genealogy research. Libraries are a valuable resource, regardless of whether the written word is on a printed page or a digital screen.
