  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/levoodoo/3735045243/ The role libraries play Most of our computer room staff spend their time showing people how to fill out online applications for jobs that may actually be beneath the person&apos;s years of experience. They are constantly helping patrons navigate the difficult unemployment forms that can no longer be filed in paper form. We&apos;re the liason to social services, providing phone numbers, contacts, and even legal forms for the life events of our patrons. http://librarygremlin.blogspot.com/2009/10/its-tough-all-over.html#links The only place most people can receive instruction on these new literacies is at a library.  There is no one else. While some students may be fortunate enough to be exposed in at school, either through teachers or the library, most are not. Adults have nowhere to turn but the public library.
