In a world of Google and Amazon, libraries rethink their role

    It's National Library Week this week so I wanted to share an article about libraries.

    In a world of Google and Amazon, libraries rethink their role

    The subheading made me want to read this article - "More information is available online than ever. Libraries are stepping in to make sure everyone can access it."

    This image caption also got my attention-

    "Not everyone has access to tech resources many take for granted, including laptops and an internet connection. That's where libraries can help."


    Libraries mentioned in the article for the work they do for making sure people have access to technology:

    New York Public Library
    San Francisco Public Library
    Detroit Public Library
