There are conflicting views on how people should finish their reading in the more and more productive society. Some people tend to support that a city/town should provide a public library to their citizens, while others have different views that reading could be done on the Internet instead of being finished in a library, which is a waste of money. Both views appear reasonable.
On the one hand, some people’s approval of building a library by the city/town is due to the fact that readers can keep themselves away from the noisy environment and daily hassles and are able to relieve stress from work by reading in the library which makes readers peaceful, comfortable and undisturbed. Besides, the library is a boon for poor students who can’t afford to buy text books or other books of their interest. They can borrow these books and read or study them at ease at home. A library is thus a help to the society.
On the other hand, advocates of reading online take the cost of running a library into consideration. The newest information online is updated so rapidly from time to time that you can research and receive the news at the same time when it happens. And all these things you need to do is just a click of the mouse which helps you finish reading in a second. In my opinion, although reading online makes us more convenient and receive information more rapidly, a library is a necessary to the society.
There has been an increase in the popularity of the internet; one may pause to think the decreasing relevance and importance of a library in today’s world. But one should keep in mind that a person goes to a library not only to search and absorb knowledge from books but also to sit and study there. The ambience and the peaceful and scholarly atmosphere then helps one to concentrate more on one’s study and work.. Thus libraries will never become redundant. They will always be there to indicate the presence of a well-read and educated society.
