||As we look out into the future, it is clear that all libraries will be challenged to maintain pace with the sudden and substantial expansion of information. Not only are more books being written and published now than ever before, but books are only one of many forms by which information is stored and available for use. Information technology provides us all with instant access to the information we need on the Internet and the World Wide Web. |
Telecommunications technologies have advanced so that our access to information from anywhere on the planet is almost immediate and reliable. Words are now supplemented by voice, music, photos, and videos. There is no doubt that some of this information we find will swirl in controversy, and it is up to each of us to make sense of what we find, to separate the gold from the gravel.
And we each can do this by exploring this exploding and dynamic world of information, by learning to identify the notions to embrace and cherish from the great mass of ideas before us.
Please visit your Library. The Mill Valley Public Library extends itself to the Community with programs for users of all ages.
Our Library is our cultural keystone.
