Abstract:
The last has not been seen of rose gardens or libraries, the author suggested. Graff’s reminder for both is Sunnyside Rose Garden, one with local historical relevance and found out more about with the help of librarians. Another truth discovered at the main library in uptown Charlotte: the greater relevance of libraries to millennials in comparison to Generation X and baby boomers. As for libraries’ importance to the homeless, unemployed, and politicians, the author considered their access to warmth, internet, and information about past public servants’ faux pas.
