Long reach

Our library "has the world at its fingertips." And that is very nearly literally so.

I needed some information, very much out of the way, so I sought it at a branch of the Fresno County Public Library. Using a search engine, the librarian found it very quickly by punching out for it with his fingertips on his computer keyboard.

Either the computer has a very long reach, or the world has shrunk, or both.
