    Please have a look at the revised essay.

    The revised sentences are in bold text.

    In the process of integrating technology into social life, the function conflicts between computer technology and public libraries become inevitable. Personally speaking, I would tend to keep public libraries. There are several key reasons to support the indispensable role of public libraries.

    First, the public libraries undertake the educational function. The wide range and type of materials could provide selectable channels and individualized experiences for different people, especially people without professional skills, broad horizons and high adaptabilities, such as the children, the elders and other disadvantaged groups. Due to age or era limitations and living pressure, these people might lack the chance and consciousness to gain extra knowledge as leisure. In this sense, the public libraries could save their preparatory work and lower their threshold. Then, these people living with limited computer technology would obtain proportionable opportunities in society. Eventually, public libraries could facilitate knowledge popularization.

    Second, the public libraries also provide the archiving function. Under electronic storage and the threat of power failure, paper and other kinds of physical carriers remain irreplaceable nowadays. Thus, the public libraries could play an insurance role. In addition, the old versions of publications and past periodicals within several years could be stored and borrowed before being moved to the archives and other institutions.

    Third, public libraries could offer social functions for the community. Governmental and social institutions could organize public events. For example, the art exhibitions, reading clubs and theme seminars could be registered beforehand or open to the residents. Through these activities, the public libraries could allow residents’ communication and facilitate community interaction.

    Therefore, these functions unfold the necessity of public libraries. Even though computer technology continuously progresses, public libraries should continue to operate based on their unique social role and contribution.

    Under the Computer technology shocks, the value of public libraries starts to be queried. Personally speaking, I would tend to keep public libraries. There are several key reasons to support the indispensable role of public libraries.

    First, the public libraries undertake the educational function. The wide range and type of materials could provide selectable channels and individualized experiences for different people, especially people without professional skills, broad horizons and high adaptabilities, such as the children, the elders and other disadvantaged groups. Due to age or era limitations and living pressure, these people might lack the chance and consciousness to gain extra knowledge as leisure. In this sense, the public libraries could save their preparatory work and lower their threshold. Then, these people living with limited computer technology would obtain proportionable opportunities in society. Eventually, utilizing public libraries, knowledge popularization could be facilitated.

    Second, the public libraries also provide the archiving function. Under electronic storage and the threat of power failure, paper and other kinds of physical carriers remain irreplaceable nowadays. Thus, the public libraries could play an insurance role. In addition, the old versions of publications and past periodicals within several years could be stored and borrowed before being moved to the archives and other institutions.

    Third, public libraries could offer social functions for the community. Irregularly, public events would be organized in public libraries. For example, the art exhibitions, reading clubs and theme seminars could be registered beforehand or open to the residents. Through these activities, the public libraries could allow residents’ communication and facilitate community interaction.

    Therefore, these functions unfold the necessity of public libraries. Even though computer technology continuously progresses, public libraries should continue to operate based on their unique social role and contribution.
