But for a different perspective, I offer you Who Says Libraries are Dying. The author shares some great examples of ways that libraries are alive, and well, and making a difference in their communities. The examples range from programs on 21st century skills, to services to help the homeless. It sums up:

Libraries in the 21st century are going to be less about books and more about the services that library staff provide to their communities.

Hear, hear.

And here‘s another way to look at why the world still needs libraries.
