Public libraries should only provide books and should not waste their limited resources on expensive high-tech media such as software, videos or DVDs. Do you agree or disagree? Advancement of technology has caused all public places to changegetting changed, to a great extent. These days, public libraries are contained plenty of various high-tech media facilities. Some people hold that it is a way of wasting money to provide software, videos and DVDs for library user; however, others assert that people are more attracted to these technical materials and libraries should consider them as much as books and periodicals. From my stand point, most of libraries’ financial resources should be spent on providing technological materials. To find out how much of public libraries’ resources needs to be served on the technological part, a group of people mention that the attraction of these materials are is not even compatible to traditional book shelf’s. Library goers tend to use visual-audio DVDs and videos CDs in order to enhance their hands-on experiences. Although, the old-fashioned way of reading a book can gives them theoretical information, they need to watch and hear those items visually to have better function in practical partaspects. They will be more expert in their relative field by reading books and watching videos, simultaneously. It is also more advantageous to use software at public libraries, since it is more efficient in terms of cost-benefit, compared to buying expensive software. For international students, for instance, it costs them a fortune for them to buy these staffsmaterials, so using them at libraries is more functional, convenient and beneficial. Furthermore, using the internet for books, borrowers can make the procedure of borrowing less time consuming, compared to the traditional ways of searching for a particular book. If they cannot find their required book in their local library, they still can find its location in other libraries, in a the blink of an eye. The internet networks has opened many different ways of connection for library users. To put it in a nutshell, some people however, are concerned about the reduction of value and role of books in people’s life., I strongly agree with those who believe that technology plays an active role in providing new and functional facilities for library goers and it is not a the way of wasteing of libraries resources.
