Temples of wisdom

In the past they used to be temples of wisdom but now are almost completely forgotten by the Internet addicts of the 21st century. They have a lot to offer and want to serve people again. And they are LIBRARIES.

The first libraries appeared more than 4000 years ago to store important historical documents and pass knowledge from generation to generation. A lot of things have changed since then, clay tablets and papyrus scrolls were replaced by printed books, but they are still working. Everywhere. Nowadays libraries use modern technologies and provide their visitors with a variety of books on all topics. But their future is unclear. It depends on us, the readers.

My friends and I go to the library quite often. It is a great way to get books for free. And I think you should too. You don’t need to be a bookworm to go to that sacred building. Just give it a shot and I promise you’ll like it!
