Libraries play a unique role in American society as centers for learning, as hubs for human interaction, and as safety nets. It was no accident that public libraries were established when our new democratic nation was young. Libraries educate people, support democracy by providing people with the tools to make informed decisions, and provide a safe and welcoming gathering place where people can explore and discuss ideas without fear of reprisal or censorship.
Free access to books, ideas, resources and information in America's libraries is imperative for the education, employment, enjoyment and self-government of our citizens.
Online access is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a physical place to meet and share ideas.
