Your shool has enough money to purchase either computers for students or books for the library. Which should your school choose to buy - computers or books? Use specific reasons and examples to support your recommendation.
Our school already has books in its library and it already has computers. However, I think buying more computers is more important than buying more books. Computers provide access to more information than books, and they provide it more quickly. Also, in this modern world, every student needs to learn how to use computers skillfully. We need computers more than we need books.
Computers, unlike books, provide access to up-to-date information. Right now, the reference books in our library are very outdated. If we buy new books today, they will become old very quickly. Computers, on the other hand, provide the ability to access the latest information on the Internet. They are the best tool available.
Computers also provide information more quickly. Just type in a keyword and many sources of information appear instantly on the screen. It takes much longer to look up information in a book, and often the book you want is not immediately available. You have to wait for somebody to return it or order it from another library.
Computers are an important tool in the modern world, so students have to learn how to use them. If students do all their schoolwork on computers, they will develop the computer skills that they will need in the future. Therefore, we need to have a computer for every student in the school.
If we buy more computers for our school, all the students will have access to the latest information. They will be able to do their work more quickly and they will learn important skills, too. For these reasons, I feel that purchasing computers will benefit us more than buying books.
