Why libraries are still important:  freedom.  

"Since the founding of our country, libraries have always been important to freedom. Today we are in the midst of a tremendous shift in the way Americans consume literature and other content, but one thing has not changed -- the library must continue to play a central role in providing open and free access to information and ideas."
Haber, Steve.  “The Changing Role of Libraries in a Digital Age.” Huffington Post, Jan 13 2011. Web. 15 Jul 2012
Libraries remain a great equalizer between the "haves" and "have-nots". Qualified librarians provide the help and guidance needed to acquire the resources and skills to access literature and information.  Research confirms that access to these free resources with the assistance of a certified librarian results in increased literacy and academic success.  Support the funding of your public libraries. Advocate for a full-time certified librarian at every public school. Our students deserve it.
Freedom is worth fighting for. 
North Ridge Library and Courtyard
Every child needs a safe place to fall - a place where he or she can explore things without worrying about failure and judgment. A library is one of those places. In a library you can learn by following your own nose, which is very different from someone telling you what you should learn. Once a kid learns a library is hers, to use as she wants, the world opens up. I've seen it happen. It happened to me. -- Grammy-winning Singer, Songwriter, Storyteller Bill Harley
