It seems like most of the report we hear about libraries lately is preventing, with application lessening and funding being denied. Most people’s firstly assumption would be that it’s an expected consequence of how people use technology. As e-books and apps that tell people obtain them in seconds spread, public libraries fall by the wayside as a behavior to access media. Right?
Not relatively! It’s actually more likely than you think that you can do all of those things–check out e-books, audiobooks, graphic romances, and other media–not by present more of your money to Amazon for a due, but by expending your library card, a public service that your taxes are already paying for, to sign into the many apps that public libraries themselves use. You get a wealth of information and entertainment, and library application statistics go up. If you haven’t checked whether you can sign in to these services with your local library card, this is your reminder to do so.
