The following is a response to the Aug. 1 editorial “Beyond The Book.”
I write in total agreement with Betsy Abraham. I, too, spent years in libraries, as a patron, and volunteer worker during high school. Libraries, along with my mother’s having books all over the house, fed and maintained my curiosity. They taught me research skills I still use today. In this era of “information overload,” these skills are sorely needed. It is my hope that libraries can, and will, continue to serve as the important part of communities that they, in fact, are.
