Windows to the world

"The libraries I biked to were, indeed, an air conditioned paradise for kids in the summer. Perhaps they remain a heated place for the retired in other seasons. Libraries of today offer not just computers, but technical help in mastering the machinery. Older citizens suddenly have a home with thousands of newly installed windows to the world".
Beverly C. Lucey: "Liberty and the Librarian". Commentary of the Day in the Irascible professor-weblog, November 10, 2006.
