With internet power and convenience, who needs libraries today?
Well, I do. There are things like copyright laws that do not allow some material to be available on-line. So, no problem. I love libraries. I'm one of the geeky ones who would be happier to spend the day at the library than at the mall.
UP Diliman Main Lib
If the basement was for serious study, the topmost floor was for relaxation as the newspapers and magazines were there. That was a favorite place as the windows were wide and open and the breeze and sunlight would just flow in and around and carress us all pursuers of knowledge and truth.
One thing I remember distinctly about the UP Lib was the Quiet. Everybody was reading or writing or doing whatever, Quietly.
Not so at the SU Lib. Terribly not so.
