History of Libraries

Records of libraries go back almost as far as records of human civilization. We have detailed records of a separate library building with organized rooms by subject for the cunieform tablets as far back as 2700 BC.

For a quick summary of library history, go to Libraries. In addition, take a look at the article on libraries in the World Book Encyclopedia. If you find an even better Internet site, please let me know. Also, check out these sites:
