Libraries Today

I have, a few times recently, visited a public library in one of the wealthier parts of town. I was surprised to see that the place was packed! One of these times was in the middle of the week.

I had thought that the rise of the internet would kill a lot of library business. It seems that is not so.

It is packed mostly with teenagers who are using the computers in the library to access the internet or college-going students who are busy chatting under the pretext of working on a project. Makes it impossible for a person, who is genuinely trying to read a book or get some work done, to concentrate!
