    Why the Library?

    We're Open for Business!

    1. Not everything is on the Internet

    2. Not everything on the Internet is Free

    3. The Internet is Not Very Organized

    4. There is no quality control on the Internet

    5. Sources on the Internet can be harder to verify

    6. The Internet is too new for some things

    7. Library online resources are available 24/7

    8. The Internet is a mile wide and an inch deep

    9. You're already paying for the library

    10. Real live people can help you use our library

    This list is adapted from Mark Herring's 10 Reasons Why the Internet Is No Substitute for a Library, which originally appeared in American Libraries, April 2001, p. 76-78.
