The Library

Photography, 2016

A place can be a geographic location, however its meaning goes beyond that. The identity a place possesses can also be defined by the people who go there.

The library is familiar to most students. I used to love going to the library, because it always had all kinds of books for me to read. It was safe and a place of comfort. The library was a place for finding knowledge, yet it was also an escape from reality. However, as technology has invaded our lives, the importance of a physical place where these things can happen has changed.

The Internet is now the place for quick reference and even a source of entertainment. What will happen to the library and all its books?
