CINCINNATI -- It may not look it, but Google turned 15 years old Wednesday.
The Internet search engine is used by just about everybody. But even in 2013, there are still those who prefer the public library.
Google is so ubiquitous, even Merriam-Webster defines it as a verb.
The search engine has revolutionized how we find information for questions like: "What is gout?" and "What is planking?"
But it wasn't always that way. Remember libraries?
In the days before Google, information was often obtained from a card catalog at your local library.
But today, even libraries have gone digital.
Google is the No. 1 search engine in the world. In fact, in the time you’ve been reading this, over 100,000 searches were made for information about ‘Dancing With the Stars.’
Surrounded by stacks of books, Cincinnati resident Dan Daily went to the library Wednesday to research his family genealogy.
He says Google and its online counterparts will never replace the library.
"The Internet is for quick information, the library is for in-depth research," Daily said.
