Hi, everybody! I hope you’re all staying safe, washing your hands, and standing apart from other people.

Many of us are missing our favorite places as they lie closed for quarantine. I know that many librarians are struggling to help people from a distance — libraries are many different things to different people. A library can be a source of information, entertainment, learning, refuge, meeting space, and means of communication. It’s more than just a building full of books!

It’s interesting to see how different libraries around the world focus on different services. Here’s an article about eight different libraries around the world, with links to virtual tours of each.

What’s a library to you? Leave a comment!
