I haven't been able to read in a long time because I was either really busy and stressed out with work or stressed out with other stuff but I finally have been able to take the time to read and I forgot how much I LOVE BOOKS!  Nothing is more satisfying than staying up late and loosing yourself in a book, something that makes you think and feel alive...


That being said, I kind of want to go to school so I can work in the library someday.
Not just because of that but also because I feel like libraries or a place where people can learn in ways that public schools and universities don't teach people. They Foster The Independent love of learning and a sense of community when they're at their best.

I struggled so much in K through 12 though that I don't know if I ever could get a degree.
Even if I did, there's so many people that want to go in that field that is not be any jobs there and who's to say it's not to go obsolete within our lifetime?

Libraries will NEVER be obsolete.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

Maybe not for storage, but kids these days [that's it, I'm officially old, mark your calendar] don't have the attention spans to read books. I think the only solution is to make touchscreen devices more expensive, make old fashioned flip phones more readily available and start putting pictures in books again.

XD let's be luddites together.....just kidding.

Libraries, aren't so much only a place for books, so much as for information and technology.

The big thing within that sector is that the the rich keep saying that libraries aren't relevant anymore because they can afford things like internet and a printer, they don't need job interview help, ECT.
