Public Libraries have had a certain historical image as the place students go to do research and the rest of us go to find great books on every subject from how-to-fix-its to current bestsellers. Excepting the occasional traveling salesman looking for romance, (humming Marion, madam librarian), there is a popular misconception that libraries are a luxury in tough economic times.
After all, everyone has the internet now right?
Nothing could be farther from reality.
