In the striving efforts to support the evolution of next generation libraries, StageofLife.com launched a library resources section on its website, as a part of its growing educational resources for high school teachers and college professors. We all know that libraries are an important part of every community. Some believe, that with recent technological advances, libraries are no longer necessary, as they can be accessed online. StageofLife.com, a blogging and free writing resource for teens and college students, feels libraries are not dying, but evolving. In the past, libraries have been considered a home for books and other physical resources. So, like other businesses and organizations, libraries must adapt to succeed. What most people are not aware is the fact that libraries now exist both physically and virtually. This expansion in library systems, is just another prove that they still play a valuable role in the society. The articles and the content in the new library resources section of StageofLife.com includes a variety of information concerning libraries – benefits offered by libraries for all stages of life, quotes about libraries, how libraries are evolving, information about library professionals, challenges libraries face, information on how to get involved with a local library, statistics about libraries, links to informative and entertaining library blogs and websites, and more.
