the-atlantic(The Atlantic) Writer Deborah Fallows reveals her eye-opening experience while getting acquainted with today’s libraries. Libraries have evolved over the years to fulfill many needs, from gathering places, to job searches, to bastions of individual and communal learning.

The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) has placed public computer centers within the territory’s libraries, as they are (and the author notes) Community Anchor Institutions (CAIs) – places where people trust that they will find the resources that they need to succeed, hubs of activity, and areas of solace.
