Seems like no one visits libraries anymore. It’s such a shame, because it’s a place where you can literally surround yourself with knowledge, and what could be so bad about that? Sure, libraries have a bit of a “been there, done that” image, but they just need some new marketing and public relations people to get them back on the map (ironically, they actually are on most maps).
