The experiences people have in libraries around the world changes their lives.
The purpose of libraries has never changed, however they have always been at the cutting edge of information technology. Always bringing new ways of gathering, sharing, and learning from information.
Libraries were predicted to be extinct by now with the age of information always growing. Even during the Great Recession when funds were cut, hours were cut, staff were cut, a few libraries closed, all just when people needed library resources the most predictions of extinction continued. However libraries thrived at giving the resources needed to our communities and now are rebounding stronger than ever with more services, programs, resources, and ways of learning than ever before.
