Libraries are particularly useful for storing frequently used routines because you do not need to explicitly link them to every program that uses them)
Wikipedia, Feb. 25, 2008 (Library (computing) -- In computer science, a library is a collection of subprograms used to develop software. Libraries contain helper code and data, which provide services to independent programs. This allows code and data to be shared and changed in a modular fashion)
