Those 12 million visitors come to our libraries for free access [emphasis added] to books, journals, research materials, online information and computers, reference assistance from trained librarians, early literacy programs, English as a second language assistance, job search assistance, after school homework help from librarians and certified teachers, best sellers in multiple formats (print, audio, downloadable and e-book), movies, music, author events, book clubs, story times, summer reading programs, financial literacy programs or simply a place to learn, dream and reflect.
eventually we will get to a point where the cost of distributing books to most people will be close to zero. once this happens a lot of the value of public libraries will evaporate.
