For many of us, the public library will always be associated with books, with bound pages filled with rivers of ink that helped us discover new worlds. Books that we could take home and experience, or big library-based reference volumes filled with deep and esoteric facts.
Libraries continue to embody that spirit of search and discovery, but in a way that has been changed as dramatically as the way we read a newspaper online, read an E-book on a tablet computer or generate a social media message via Facebook. Libraries remain special, in part, for making this new digital era available to more Americans.
Libraries also remain an important ingredient of our democracy. James Madison once said, “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” While Madison probably could not have dreamed of today’s Information Age, it’s still true that our system of government can only be as well-informed as its people. And libraries play a key role in ensuring that more citizens have access to information. As such public libraries remain among our most trusted government institutions -- a safe place, usually clean and relatively quiet, to read, research and learn.
Our local public library took a major step recently to maintain its historical role as a place that is culturally ingrained as a trusted source of free and open information access and exchange.
Patrons of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library now have more computers thanks to a project of the Montgomery County Library Foundation.
