road work sign  Starting May 1st, the City of Sault Ste. Marie will begin construction on Dawson Street between Ashmun and Bingham.  Therefore patrons driving to the Bayliss Public Library will need to access the library from Ashmun onto Library Drive during the month of May, or until construction is complete.  The Dawson Street entrance will also be closed during this time, so please use one of our other entrances off of the parking lot at the front or north side of the building.

Are Librarians Totally Obsolete?  16 Reasons Why Libraries and Librarians are Still Extremely Important

Many predict that the digital age will wipe public bookshelves clean, and permanently end the centuries-old era of libraries. As libraries' relevance comes into question, librarians face an existential crisis at a time when students need them the most. Despite their perceived obsolescence in the digital age, both libraries and librarians are irreplaceable for many reasons - nearly twenty reasons, in fact. Each week we will list a new reason why your library card is still the most valuable card in your wallet.

Reason Number 10:

10. Eliminating Libraries would Cut Short an Important Process of Cultural Evolution: The library that we are most familiar with today a public or academic institution that lends out books for free is a product of the democratization of knowledge. In the old days, books weren't always so affordable, and private libraries, or book clubs, were a privilege of the rich. This started changing during the 1800's, with more public libraries popping up as a result of government initiatives.

Libraries began blossoming under the watch of President Franklin Roosevelt, in part as a tool to differentiate the United States from book-burning Nazis. This increased interest in building a more perfect, liberal society culminated in 1956 with the Library Services Act, which introduced federal funding for the first time. Today there are tens of thousands public libraries in the United States.

The notion that libraries are a thing of the past and that humankind has sprouted wings and flown into a new era of self-guided. Unfortunately, it's this same notion that could lead to the notion of libraries as stuffy and out-of-date. In reality, the quality of the web depends on guidance from the library model. While moderators do have brush to clear in the new and savage cyber-scape, librarians have trail blazed significant parts of the journey.
