The Importance of Libraries

I've heard a lot of speculation about the future of libraries lately, and worries about how they can remain relevant in this age of e-books, Google searches, and Wikipedia. (Most of the concern seems to come from librarians, not from the general populace, however, which leads me to believe that their fears are worse than the reality). This piece by Matt Haig nicely sums up why libraries are still so important to society, and I couldn't agree more.
