Why Libraries Rock

It's Blogathon Day for the Louisville Free Public Library. They were victims of a terrible flood that put over 4 ft of water into their basement and destroyed so much. See how you can help at this wiki. All of the details are there as well as links to other blogs participating in today's Blogathon.
So, why do libraries rock you ask?

-family activities
-computer access
-computer training
-reference staff to answer ANY question you have
-community building
-books and more books
-electronic databases
-summer reading program with PRIZES
-did I mention free?
-help with job searching and writing resumes
-from birth to grave, they are there!
-continuing education
-expanding knowledge
-travel to foreign lands without leaving the building
-new technology trainingdiv>

Well, I could go on and on, but I think I'm preaching to the choir here. Please take a moment to add YOUR comments on why libraries rock and help out the LFPL by donating and/or passing along this information.
