Maintaining public libraries is a waste of time since computer technology is now replacing their functions. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Nowadays, the sophisticated devices have developed at an unprecedented pace in our society that influence the existing public libraries. Some people point out that g

will no longer need to provide the traditional libraries. From my point of view, libraries should still have to maintain for public in spite of the fact that technology have replaced in
this
modern world. There are a number of reasons why it is worth investing in maintaining public libraries.
Firstly
,
although
anyone who comes from different backgrounds, they can be members for dispensing information, borrowing books, magazines or journals from libraries and even can access for twenty-four hours.
Moreover
, the sources from books are more reliable than computers where people might sometimes get irrelevant information because these books are published by professional authors around the globe.
Additionally
, most of the e

people become less adaptive to new technologies
such
as how to surf the materials related to their specialized field that are easily available through computer by clicking mouse.
On the other hand
, there are some people who assert that they can get up-to-date from computers compared to old books. They feel that they can easily surf the internet they want by sitting and clicking i

their home.
Moreover
, they
also
enjoy the colourful breaking advertisement from computers and less boring in reading printed books.
Finally
, they do not need to wait longer for books borrowed by someone like the ancient time. In conclusion, from my point of view, public libraries are deserved to maintain as they are irreplaceable resources and intended for everybody from different financial status to encourage the value of reading.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
