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

Some
people
argue that maintaining public
libraries
is pointless since they can be superseded by computer technology. While modern ways of obtaining knowledge do have some advantages, I believe that
libraries
still play a significant role in
people
's lives. On one hand, I agree that technology has fundamentally changed
people
's reading habits. These days, soft copies of
books
have gradually gained popularity and become the dominant version.
This
is because one can not only read them anywhere but
also
carry as many as he wants to, which is impossible in the case of hard copy.
In addition
, technological devices have enhanced the reading experience of users. Kindle, for an instance, is a gadget that has versatile features,
such
as screen brightness adjustment and night mode, catering to readers’ specific needs.
Furthermore
, the internet has granted
people
instant access to certain knowledge
instead
of going through
books
in the old fashion way.
However
, despite all these advantages modern technologies possess, I believe
libraries
are still crucial for both individuals and the community.
Firstly
, the sense of calmness and peace one receives in a library cannot be replaced by any high-end reading gear. There are many
people
who not only enjoy reading hard copy
books
but the tranquillity of the library as well.
For example
, many students like to study in a library far from city hustle and bustle.
Moreover
, not everyone can easily afford a personal computer or other reading gadgets. On
this
account,
such
public services benefit them by providing
books
and internet access.
Last
but not least, many municipal
libraries
are historic monuments; they are the display of culture and history and they witness the transition of
people
’s lives. In conclusion, though I agree that computer technology has functions that could replace public
libraries
, I
also
believe that It is imperative to keep and support public
libraries
in every community
