Introduction

What we think when hearing the word "the library"? is generally etched in the mind of the library is a place that is filled with a pile of bookshelves lined up in the shelves. From here we can see there are two components of library, the first component of the book, and or the various works in the form of other writing is the magazine, While the second component is a place, a building, or a room to accommodate various books, and a variety of writings, as well as a place to take care of, organize books in various themes, as well as a place to present books to See the component above then the library is defined according to a large dictionary of Indonesia as a place, building, space provided for maintenance and the use of books, and so, collection of books, magazines, and other materials stored to read, studied, and discussed.
-
From the above definition then the library can be categorize as dead objects. Then how can a dead object be said as the tip of a spear to build civilization? The Library as a weapon named spear, knife, arrows, and other things is a tool. The Library has certainly been established not just to stand up to the library itself, not just to show dashing that in certain areas there is a library. But once again the library is a tool, a tool to build civilization. What does that mean?
-
Between Library and civilization
-
According to the great dictionary of indonesian civilizations, it means the progress (intelligent, culture), in this world is not equal in the world, and the ethics of a nation. While in the definition filed by Palestinian original thinkers, taqiyuddian an nabhani in his book called nidzam al Islam, civilization is defined as a group of mafahim (ideas, ideas) about life. From the two definitions above we can see that civilization is a bunch of perception, way of view, how to think, ideas, ideas in regard to life. So speaking civilization is talking about the world of ideas, the world of ideas, and at this point the library became a fertile place to sow various ideas and ideas The idea of the idea of those ideas is a variety of neatly organized books in the library. The Library of this dead object is became living with a human being present in the library to read, learn, discuss, and analyze various ideas and ideas.
-
In this library we know and know the various minds of the world's scholars, including we became understood how the founding fathers were when they were trying to build a future Indonesian civilization. Like the library of the library to be where we find out that finally brings up a variety of knowledge and increase literacy intelligence (Read-write). In the role of the library as a tool to build this civilization we can see how a civilization is born in this world

Between Western civilization and Islamic civilization
-
West Peradan on the idea of secularism for separating religion (Christian) with life. Question is how the west makes the library as the center to build his culture. Western civilization during the dark age (centuries of darkness), in the middle ages in the western countries that dominated the church, access to the library into an exclusive thing that specifically belongs to people and nobility. Recorded in England (628-690 M) for example some place established several libraries in the yorth area, Canterbury, wearmouth, and Jarrow. While in France and Germany, the library converges in the churches. Then the key of knowledge is exclusively owned by gerejawan, and independent thinkers outside of the church institution. Those who have a lot of knowledge this is the leader and have a respectable place in society.
-
In this mid-century is the western world world is very limited, and science also experiences kemandegan because of the intervention of a church that dominates life The Western scientists of Galileo and copernicus faced the gallows just for doing new and his research was different from church doctrine. It poses a struggle among the fisosof and the clever scholar, to destroy the dominance of the church. These thinkers are the thinkers of Renaissance.
-
Then in the middle ages, the west had its renaissance, or we used to mention the age of enlightenment, when the church's dominance was only in the domain of the spiritual prifat (secularism), since that time west has been Even the library has developed rapidly as the center of civilization. The Renaissance is marked by digging up ancient Greek thoughts, various manuscripts, ancient Greek reviewed. As it appears, the center of the book that is nothing else is the library, as in Italy, Rome, Florence, and Naples. And the parent of the west library was at the library of Canterbury church with a collection of 1800 volumes of books.
-
How the west understood the importance of knowledge in building his culture, so at the time of imperialism-Kolonialismeklasik (Western colonization) of the west looting various manuscripts, writings, books, and various kinds of literature in the state of Islam. At The British National Museum there were 15.000 manuscript manuscripts According to Prof. . Muhammad Ash Ash mneyatakan that more than 30 of the 72 rooms that were in the British museum contained stolen Egyptian Relics, as well in France. In addition, there are about 10.000 manuscripts in the Italian Miroziyana Library, 3000 manuscripts are in the American Congress library, as well as 2000 manuscripts in the British library. And a thousand manuscripts of Iraq are in the library of western countries, especially in America and England.
-
While now we take examples of several large libraries in western countries, such as England has British Museum (UK National Library), also there is also an Oxford Library and Cambridge two famous campus libraries in England. While the French nation had biblioteqhue nationale, America had a library of Congres, while the Dutch had royal bibliotheek. All of these are some examples of famous peprustakaan world. From the berbagagai of a rich reference to the western civilisation of Western civilization.
-
Whereas the Islamic civilization is not a public secret again when his prime is a beacon of the world. Even far before western civilization rises (Renaissance) when the Islamic glory of the library experiences a very rapidly development. In addition to the various Muslim scientists in various fields emerging as mushroom in the rainy season. Say Al Biruni is a physicist and medicine, al hayyan, al khwarizmi's mathematician, al kindi expert in philosophy, al fargani of astronomical experts, al haythami experts in the field of optic, ibn Sina the father of modern medicine, ibn khaldun A Sociologist, Imam Magnesium Four (Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafi ' I, Ahmad Ibn Hanbal) the law of law, Abas ibn firnas peletak the concept of flying airplanes, az zahrawi the inventor of surgical knives and surgical tools, and hundreds of scientists names The other Muslims.
-
Islamic civilization that has led to Islam as its foundation has given birth to a noble civilization that even the west admits. William Drapper, the author of the west reveals the greatness of Islamic civilization by describing when in the age of Islam in Cordoba (Spain today) is the most civilized city in Europe. There are 113.000 houses, 21 satellite cities, 70 libraries and bookstore, mosques and castles. Cordova is a famous world of the world, where the road is long for miles and has been toughened by the lights of the houses around the edges. While the condition in London 7 centuries after that (15st century) a lights lamp does not exist. In Paris for centuries after the time of the Cordova people who stepped over the door when it rained, stepped to his feet into the mud. A Western scientist named Emmanuel Deutch gave his record that the Islamic civilization gave a chance for the west to achieve the resurrection in modern science.
-
And those who are born of the heavens and the earth. The Science of science is the perseverance to read, then it has been a priority for the Islamic civilization to build the centers of science, one of the centers of science is a library. At the time of the abbasid, when two thirds of the world was in the power of Islamic kekhilafahan When they were the grew house-peopled, namely a college and the library of a fantastic collection of books. Darul wisdom has 2.000.000 tome. Meanwhile in the other Islamic hemisphere the Cordova Library has 600.000 volumes of books, and the book of the judges in Andalusia books are stored in 40 books, with each of their rooms containing 18.000 volumes of books. And still dispersed the great library in the center of good science in Egypt, Damascus, Baghdad, and Medina.

The entrance to build a future Indonesian civilization: reading
-
The display above indicates that every major civilization has its deepest focus to build and develop the world read its people. And if you speak the world, then do not escape the important part of the library. So we can say that the library became the tip of a spear to build civilization.
-
While to see how the dynamics of civilization is in order to go to Indonesia the future, Indonesia Merdeka, Indonesia Sovereign, we can retrace how to read the founding fathers. Because they the founding fathers understand it is true that a civilization was built on a perception, idea, the idea, then he-he of course needs various references in order to formulate indonesian the loh, toto tentrem kerto raharjo. Then we will find his youth the founding fathers are the diligent readers, which means they've made libraries of private and public library to chew on various ideas and ideas in various books.
-
Please remember the names of the founding fathers like the great hadi kusumo, KH. Hasyim Hasyim, hatta, sukarno, and others on average is the figure of zealous readers. Seokarno for example when it is still in sakitpun according to the doctors who treat discovering in his room littered with the private library of books, newspaper, and magazines from domestic and abroad. While the hatta figure must carry 16 crates of book books from after college in Holland. Even the kh. Wachid Hasyim founded the madrassa madrassa with in it built a library more than 1000 titles with Arabic language, English, or Dutch, an enormous amount for the size of that time. As well as the figure of a great ki hadikusumo is one of the early keys of the country's independence to be the devourer of books that are so enthusiastic, even because its interests interests is good to the eye It's amazing, isn't it?
-
So it became clear that the library became an essential tool to build perdaban, as a tip of a spear as a tool to win the battle, then the library became the tip of the spear when confronted with the world's present
-
Then what about our interest in Indonesia today? Are we today following our ancestor s' founding fathers the founding fathers? To know this then of course we need to observe objectively related to literacy world in our beloved country. According to data research published by the Central Bureau of statistic (Sab) and the United Nations of education social and cultural (UNESCO) in 2012 shows that the number of Indonesian people who have read interest is 1: 1.000. means from 1000 Indonesia is only 1 who has an interest in reading, while the remaining 999 residents lack interest in reading activities. Seeing data so weep it makes us need to be more of an extra power to grow an interest in the community. How Indonesia would be an advanced civilization if his sense of reading is in such an alarming condition?

Building public networking
-
Then what are we supposed to do? There is no other word unless we have to be more able to grow an interest in a society that's coming back to tidakmau. From the beginning of the library living as a corpse running with a pile of dusty books, and built only to fulfill his existence, the library had to raise ruhnya as the tip of the How? By Building a community of readers.
-
Who is the community network of readers here? It's anyone who likes, hobbies, in literacy world. Literacy is as read and write ability. Then anyone who has a deep interest in the world reads and writes need to build a community web network to formulate creative ideas so that people want to come to the library. Instead of coming to the library but more than it wants to review, read, enjoy the various kinds of letters lined up at the buffet table called a bookcase. Can even move more than that to tell other friends who haven't been able to stop by the library that it's a great pleasure to gobble up some books in the library. Reading this book can be poured in the activities of books, book books, or forms of various writing and being distributed via social media, could be in the form of book reviews, articles, features and anything that can stimulate people who are initially not so concerned with reading activities, Or the people who first doubt step foot into the library, then they're interested in coming to the library. And in the end the library will become a learning center and community activities.
-
Does your optimism make the library as the study center and the activities of society can come true? Must be, with conditions given the opportunity of the young people to take more active roles in this process. Why lads? Because in this youth is the spirit, ideals, and independence is burning. Sukarno once said "give me 10 young men then I will shake the world". and if we see in the course of history then these young people are holding an important role in a variety of So that it is important for us to provide the vastness of space to young people to play an active role in literacy world, and of course these young people need to gain guidance from a more senior age. Who are these young people? Just to make it easy to simplify young people in the education level include students of the first middle school (High School), high school, and students, including the students in the boarding school.
-
As our technical technical step to find this community of readers, we can see the base data of the library visitors, the base of the library members of the library, which with this base data is a bit much we've Stay we contact them, discover, and collect them to find those who are specifically interested in literacy. Because they are the end of the spear movement at the beginning of what you do. While the library lives on do, monitoring, and evaluation.
-
With the development of the literacy world among the young, then the effect will automatically make the library as the central center of ideas, ideas and other creative activities. It is so that the public community network read that is voluntary non-profit will print, build, and mengkader readers of the next time. Stay the library as a body of kepengurusannya mendinamiskan and stimulates the community's community network to be more creative. Surgical activities and have books into the pekanan library by coordinating this community of readers by inviting public societies, the library as the body of its check and developed various communities in the community to develop their operations in the library. So that the library will be crowded as the idea of ideas with various ideas and activities in order to build future Indonesian civilization to be better.
-
Maybe anyone think that a variety of activities builds this civilization requires a lot of funding? So that this funding issue could be an obstacle to the implementation of this audience's community network. We are currently living in the era of capitalism that it is as if everything is measured by "Vani piro", Precisely literacy activities to build this civilization must release diridari the shackles of capitalism, and as long as it is possible that this community's community network movement is to undermine the idea of capitalism that has imprisoned this country in a
-
Literacy activities, are activities within the domain of various ideas and ideas, which can be said not to require funding. These readers are the ones with the ability of each other to educate non-profit in socialized, print, and set up the next generation to role-playing in literacy world. Because once again this community community community activity is inviting other people to read, and present in the library with all its operations. If you want to estimate the budget, then the budget will be paid for the white water just for being interrupted. Because once again building civilization is to build a thought.

Utilizing social media
-
Today the world seems to be getting closer. When the information can be easily, we can only open a cell phone in our grasp, any information we can get. With various internet and social resources of our world today is pampered with a wide variety of information. These anomalies are the rapidly growing media that are not offset with literacy capabilities (Read-write). What happens is our society today is inundated with hoaxes, various trash information in doubt.
-
Indonesia includes one of the social media social users with high mobility. Obtained data that is less than the total number of Indonesian population 255 billion (November 2015). From the total number of this population is available between 88,1 billion active connections as internet users, 79 billion active as media social users. While the average time being used per media social user in each day is the highest on Facebook with average 405 minutes per user. While the most high social media usage platform is achieved by Facebook, then them successive, Twitter, Facebook massanger, Google +, Linkedin, Instagram, Skype, Pinterest, and lines. From the age of Facebook users (November 2015) at least 20-29 years of age group (35 million accounts), then join a group of 13-19 years of age (26 million accounts), 30-39 years ( 12 million accounts), 40-49 years (3 million accounts), 50-59 years (1 million accounts), and last 60 years above (1 million accounts).
-
What can we get from the data above? From the data above we get a general picture that social media becomes the lifestyle of our society today. Every day of society with various age connected with the internet and social media. Therefore this social media can be used as one of the means to mempromokan, socialize, and spread different content related to interesting interests, including inviting people to turn on the library. Updating content content for reading and visiting the library with interesting views so moving people to grow read interests and visit the library. With Internet and social media allows the reach of information related to the world's study and library faster, and more widely accessed by a broad society. So there are no options for us unless we are actively active using the internet and social media as the means of literacy literacy.

Librarian is the key to civilization
-
Until here is an important part of a pustakwan. It is other than as the most understanding and most aware of the layout of a book in a bookcase, more than that he is a teacher for the community, to be leaders in encouraging society in growing interest in the community, and this is a key activity in the transformation of Finally working together between librarians with the community community network of readers will make the library increasingly dynamic and more tempting for the audience to drop itself in literacy, by making the library as a study center and community activities.
