Today I will talk about whether or not public libraries should be shut down or not.
As online learning becomes more common and more and more resources are converted to digital form
some people have suggested that public libraries should be shut down and, in their place, everyone should be given an iPad with an e-reader subscription.
study done on tablet vs book reading found that people read 20-30% slower on tablets, retain 20% less information, and understand 10% less of what they read compared to people who read the same information in print.
Additionally, staring too long at a screen has been shown to cause numerous health problems, including blurred vision, dizziness, dry eyes, headaches, and eye strain, at much higher instances than reading print does.
