Libraries matter more, not less, in a digital age. Terrific public libraries play a more connected role in our communities today than in the past. We rely on libraries more than ever for a wider array of services. The availability of books and other materials in a wide range of formats, for anyone, whether they can pay or not, is an essential public service. The availability of safe public spaces is an essential resource in our democracy. Libraries preserve our historical, scientific and cultural record through their collections. They help people find jobs, gain new skills, and get ahead in life.
