A Compelling Case That Libraries are One of Our Most Crucial Social Institutions

In this NY Times Opinion piece the author, Eric Klinenberg, advocates what we already know to be true: libraries are a necessary social institution.

In addition to access to free information for all, libraries continue to be one-stop-shops that offer those critical intangible currencies -knowledge, camaraderie, interaction -all in a welcoming space that you just can’t seem to find anywhere else.
