This is a nice article on the value of libraries

A Field Trip to America's Public Libraries: How they serve the needs of their communities
As we’ve been crisscrossing the country visiting towns and cities for our American Futures project, I always look forward to stopping in the town's public library. Every town has one. They’re often lovely buildings. (Thank you, Andrew Carnegie!) They offer a first pulse of the town. (Are they vibrant and bustling?) The librarians are as knowledgeable as the newspaper editors and as welcoming as the Chamber of Commerce. Who wouldn’t love a library?
