The Importance of Public Libraries

Our school library is of huge importance to students and staff. It is the heart of the school and hosts many resources that benefit all of it users throughout the day.

Public libraries are also of similar importance, perhaps even more so. The benefits of public libraries are not just one of borrowing books for free, but they also provide a great source of information and run many different services, programmes and events.
Everyone has equal access to all the library’s facilities which provides free access to books, quiet reading spaces, safe environments for children to browse the books, free WiFi access, IT equipment for study and research and much more.
Public libraries are seen to be the hub of many communities and are environments that connect people to people as well as supporting the idea of reading for pleasure.
