Libraries will become museums of books

The main thing in gaining knowledge it's a way of interacting a person with a repository of knowledge. While studying, we first of all or listeners, or readers, or users, and only afterwards pupils and students.

Learn at all times, the child will always begin as a listener receiving the knowledge, that is stored in the memory his of parents. But from the moment, how his is begin teach the written literacy, he is already learning as a reader, getting knowledge from books, stored in a accessible him library.

In our country the last real readers graduated from school in mid 60-ies of 20th century.

Since the 70's - television, and since the late 80's - else and computers, more and more converted the learner from the reader into a user. In the 21st century, the Internet already has completely replaced libraries.

Now to school come, only users, but are taught, them there, still as readers. This is the main problem of the contemporary school and the tragedy of its pupils.

This is the beginning of the end the era of writing in the history of humanity!

Humanity experienced already similar misfortune in the past. The end, of Antique World in the 5th century AD, becomes the end of spoken word, at the time, disappeared the tribunes of Forum and Senate. Without their example, most people in the conversation, more than a thousand years, used only three hundred words, this was enough for a family and street quarrel.

Vocabulary of the inhabitant of Europe expands after a invention of a printing press, when the books began to print large print runs.

Now has come the time the end of the history of books, of newspapers and magazines, that is to say the end of the printed word. Disappear, libraries of books and habit of reading the newspaper over a cup of morning coffee.

Of course, becoming a user, a person does not completely unlearn to write and read. As before, by becoming a reader, he did not completely unlearn to speak and listen. But the user's vocabulary, for a time, will become as squalid, what was the vocabulary of the inhabitant of Medieval Europe. Only new a virtual art can again will extend the vocabulary of users, but his is yet no.

The stories of the ancient storytellers have became myths and legends for readers who perceive their sense quite not this way, as readers.

Today, the meaning of books, is not very understood by users, because the they perceive it quite not this way, as readers.

Myths and legends for readers this is not sources of knowledge, but simply monuments of cultural. For Internet users, already books this is not sources of knowledge, but only monuments of culture.

It's foolish to bury your head in the sand and do not notice this, and is pointless to try to save libraries, which already are no longer needed anyone of those, who is now getting knowledge in a school and university.

Today, the libraries - in fact, and tomorrow - and in form, will become museums of books, museums of the printed word.
