Libraries Will Prevail

   Will libraries exist in half a century? That is the question I hear others debating.

Everyday is Earth Day

   Mother Earth. She is all we have. We are reminded of this as we celebrate Earth Day. We hear it all the time; rising sea levels, global warming and going green.
