Nathan531 1 / - Nov 12, 2021 #1The importance of public libraries nowadaysMany people assert that with the explosion of the Internet these days, various information can be easily found online, therefore there are no reasons to spend a huge amounts of money attempting to update the public libraries. However, I am in the opposition to this idea, since libraries still play a vital role in conveying knowledge to people and many of them even have historical significance. To support my view, several reasons are outlined in this essay.A very important point to consider is that libraries contain an enormous amount of knowledge about various topics, and most of them are completely true. In spite of the fact that people still find it easily to access to different kinds of information online, it is noticeable that there is still a range of unverified or wrong information from harmful resources. For instance, there are variations of articles that lie about all the historical occasions in the past and are successful in attempting to make readers believe the wrong information they convey. So maintaining libraries play a crucial role in order to help people access verified and correct knowledge.It should also be remembered that a number of libraries from different countries in the world nowadays have even become the symbols of various aspects, especially education. They also consist of the beauty of architecture from a few centuries ago, and many of them have been considered national heritages, which impresses the fact that libraries play a vital role in humans' lives. To illustrate this point, I would like to mention the library of Leipzig University in Germany, which was constructed in the 1500s and has still been in use until nowadays.Granted it is true that the Internet has brought a range of opportunities to help people access various information in a brief time. Nonetheless, it is more important to remember that the public libraries still contain significant importance in ordinary life and different aspects like art, historical meaning and architecture.
