Summary

That the book will always be with us is merely a statement of fact. Its physical form may change, what with technological advancement, but its essence will always be with us. That essence, described as the physical result of a mind or minds attempting with varying degrees of success to make contact with and inform other minds, will remain constant in every future age. This is, after all, one of the cardinal purposes of education, towards which every book, however made or used, is always employed. For this reason, it is imperative that every effort should be made to expand and develop libraries and take them to the people. (Author/GO)
