The world of books
is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds
ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old
and die out, and after an era new races build others. But in the
world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and
again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they
were written, still telling men's hearts of the heart of men
Shepherdstown Public Library
is prominently featured in the recently published book,
The Public Library, A Photographic Essay by Robert
Dawson. Says Mr. Dawson, "Even in our Internet era,
more books are being published than ever before, yet library
budgets are shrinking. More is being demanded of our
libraries, as they move beyond their role as centers for
books and knowledge to becoming centers for community."
