Here are two reasons why you should read further:
- Libraries give us opportunities to research any subject

So, if you enjoy libraries then, you are going to love this post because I do too!
First, I am researching around for different opinions regarding early library history. So, the bullets below are some notes I have gathered from a particular website discussing the history of libraries.
Here are my notes:

How do you act in libraries?
I like to walk inside and look around at the architecture because the whole place can either be exotic or plain. Personally, I do not like or enjoy plain. More importantly, I see libraries as a sanctuary or a place to be one with myself. Basically, libraries give me room to breathe. Fortunately, libraries provide me with the resources to:
- Print anything really!
- Fax your insurance, etc.
- Scan your important documents to someone else
- Read newspapers and articles; …going way back…
- Watch tapes and/or programs
- Hear from other people’s experiences when you read books.
- Listen (Audio tapes, etc.)

The Purpose of A Library System
In my opinion, libraries are not being used to the fullest because most people use the computers and office supplies.
