Amid the availability of information on the internet, public libraries are no longer necessary.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.


In olden days, libraries were popular and many people used to go there to study. However, now we are living in modern era where many changes have taken place. These days technology is increasing. So, some people think that libraries are no more important while other oppose. I agree with the second view and would discuss both the sides and give my view in the following paragraphs.

There are certain reasons to support my view. Firstly, library provides reader friendly environment. Many youngsters go there to study as there is pin drop silence and everyone sitting their studies. So, it is easy to build concentration. On the other hand, internet only gives information from various sources, but it is difficult to find suitable time and place so study as people casual. Many youngsters prefer libraries to prepare for competitive exams where they need to study continuously.

Secondly, everybody can afford to go to public libraries. One only needs a library card and does not have to pay again. He can even get books issued of any kind and return within a stipulated time period. He can find books in different languages, especially in ancient languages which is difficult to find on the internet. Also, which they many not afford. Due to this, public libraries should not be demolished.

On the other hand, some people contradict the above said. They believe that these days youngsters do not have time to go to library and study. There are opening and closing hours of library, whereas one can find any information on the internet any time he/she wants. Moreover, internet is a reservoir of knowledge. One can find the same information or books from various sources or authors or teachers worldwide.

To conclude, I would like to state that both the above-said points are relevant and valid. However, if I consider these logically, then I believe that the first view is more effective and powerful, and so, libraries should continue to exist even if internet provides all the information.
