Libraries are essential in a process of giving citizens access to knowledge. In digital times they are needed more than ever before. Get your library card, and you’ll be able to borrow a print or electronic book, use free internet, or attend a course improving your digital skills. Most importantly, however, libraries are the places where you can expect smart and clear answers to even most difficult questions.
