If libraries were no extension of our school system, they would be an incredible hub for learners!
They could resemble the reading places of the Renaissance where some of the best Enlightenment thinkers have gotten their education.
Most people were trained to dislike the things they would do in libraries, like reading and do them anymore after they leave school, and so they don’t use the library.
But libraries could help people do so much more! Consider it with amneties for learning instruments, or to paint, or to make electronic systems.
There may be even toys! We have a myriad of toys lying around in middle class houses which are not being used anywhere whereas the poorer people do not have any!
Who is going to do the work to set all this up? We have millions of people looking for work. And this is not expensive to bootstrap.
