Libraries are also changing to meet the demand put on them. The new generation whose demand for information is never met is always demanding that traditional libraries should be developed as a well equipped and interconnected as computerized libraries. Public libraries are the need of society in order to educate the common people about their rights and duties and spread the environment of democracy and inculcate the values and culture among the people. One may find this library at every level like national, state, regional and district level. It serves the every common citizen living in the urban or rural areas. The people who are living in the villages may get benefit from the public libraries in order to update the information about their country’s development and technological changes. The information and communication technology has played a vital role in the library sector.
