What is library?

A famous American journalist Norman Cousins simply redefined the meaning of library when he said,

The library is not a shrine for the worship of books.  It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one’s devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. 

A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life. 

Ideas. It’s all about the ideas. Nothing else. 

That’s the real education.
