Libraries are an important part of many communities, but some people have argued that they're not as necessary as they once were. Budget cuts and the rise of the internet have led some to question the need for libraries. As readers explore this point of view, they also find compelling reasons why many still consider a library in every community a necessity. These reasons are presented through accessible main text that is enhanced by fact boxes, full-color photographs, and a detailed graphic organizer. This critical thinking exercise promotes a love of reading and respect for other opinions.
