When more kids have ipad's than not, libraries will most certainly die.

The relevance of printed books on paper is declining steadily. However, digital libraries will be a valuable asset, either on line, or local lending libraries.

One library service we greatly enjoy is the use of "audio books" on CD. We always borrow several before long driving trips. They really make the travel much more enjoyable, and give us a chance to hear (often in the author's own voice) books we might not otherwise take the time to read.

Thanks libraries! That is one portion of our property taxes that is well spent, and well managed.

Daily we do genealogical and historical research utilizing the resources of our wonderful local Salt Lake libraries. Thank you Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, and the Family History Library for all you do to facilitate this research in the heartland of genealogy and family history research.

Contrary to popular opinion, everything is not found on the Internet, in electronic format or through technology. Libraries are essential blood, bone and sinew of research. With onsite research in private and public libraries located here in Salt Lake and through inter-library loan, we have been able to access materials for professional research and provide the needed services in US and international genealogy and family history research. Salt Lake is definitely the best place for doing such research because of the quality of our library systems.
