Reading has always been the integral part of our lives and there are many ways to read nowadays. Some people claim that libraries are not useful anymore and soon they will disappear. Others, however, believe that libraries are popular at all times and they will always be needed. In this essay I will express my opinion on this issue.
Personally, I agree with the first position. Public libraries are becoming less and less popular these days. To start with, they have become useless in the twenty first century. Digital revolution has allowed people to use their gadgets for reading. You can now just search for any book in the net and read it from your phone or lap-top. Moreover, reading in public libraries is not comfortable in comparison with other ways of reading.
It takes a lot of time to come to the library, find the book you need and sometimes even stay in a queue to take it.
However, some people would not agree with my position. They could say that it is much more interesting and enjoyable to hold a real book in your hands than a gadget. They also claim that reading a paper book is healthier, as it does not damage your vision.
I cannot fully agree with these statements. Although reading paper books is healthier, taking them from libraries is still not the best way to read them. It is much better to buy the books you like because you will not have to return them back and they will stay with you forever.
All in all, libraries have become not popular anymore because there are a lot of other more comfortable ways to read nowadays. That is why public libraries are going to disappear soon.
