When I want a book to read, I get it from ---- the Library!
Using the internet at home, I have access 24 hrs/day.
When I use the internet to find information, the onus is on me to decide which information is reliable and which is not. When I use the information sources that are provided by the library, I am sure that they have been selected with users' needs in mind and that they are reliable sources.
Some of the best online information sources are not free. I cannot afford to buy these services. But the library pays the access fee so that all patrons can use these online fee-based resources.
Some information simply is not available on the internet free. To limit my searching to free sources, I am missing a great deal of valuable information. Therefore, I use both library sources and free internet sources for a comprehensive search.
The internet is not organized like a library is. Sometimes locating what you want on the Web is a trial-and-error process. I appreciate the ease with which I can find information in an organized library.
