Libraries are Links to Literacy and Learning | Beyond the Classroom | School Libraries around the world |

Today’s libraries are more than just houses for books. Where can low-income families access the Internet for free? The library. What is a safe place for kids to go to after school? The library. Where can teens and their parents access college resources like school and financial aid information? The library. You get the picture. The library is a community space for reading, for research or for gathering to learn. It provides the perfect quiet space for mentoring, tutoring, or studying. And what better place for a child to get lost in a good story and discover a new world!
