It’s well known that libraries are essential in a process of giving citizens access to knowledge. Now, in a digital era, I believe that they are needed more than ever before.
Moreover, nowadays, in a library, you will be able to borrow a print or electronic book, use free internet or even attend a course improving your digital skills. In my opinion, libraries are the places where you can expect and get smart answers to the most difficult questions. And if you leave the library with even more questions, then you are on the right track to find the real answer. This is why most of the time the answers are inside of us. Books help us light up all these answers.
So, I don’t know if you have ever been interested in libraries, but I will give you reasons to start now. Through my research I found some really spectacular libraries that can bring out the bookworm in everyone. In fact, “a library should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas – a place where history comes to life.”
Of course, those in love with books can also visit thousands of online libraries, without leaving home. My recommendation for today is to have a look at these absolutely fascinating libraries around the world: the classic ones and the modern ones. Each one of them is unique! I wish I could visit each of it at least once in my life. But who knows… Enjoy!!
